Listening to Kimpling's "Kim" on tape and this comment caught my attention:

(travelling lama) “What profit to kill men?”

(retired sepoy officer)“Very little— as I know; but if evil men were not now and then slain it would not be a good world for weaponless dreamers."

Ahh, Kipling... Both wise and entertaining.

"In the carboniferous epoch
we were promised perpetual peace.
They swore if we gave up our weapons
that the wars of the tribes would cease.
But when we disarmed they sold us,
and delivered us, bound, to our foe.
And the gods of the copybook headings said,
'Stick to the devil you know.'"

--Rudyard Kipling
