We Humans Are Warriors

Warriors are those who choose to stand between their enemy and all that they love or hold sacred. This quote was originally paired with a photo of a European sword. I don’t own any European swords. I do own an Asian short sword modeled after a European sword. Just this weekend I was explaining to a couple friends how these short swords have been used in fairly recent wars. One thing is for sure, people like using weapons. Probably doesn’t matter much if it’s a slab of cold steel or a nuclear missile. Although killing someone with a knife is a bit more intimate than destroying an entire county with nuclear missiles.

“Warriors are those who choose to stand between their enemy and all that they love or hold sacred.” The sacred is often given and ordained by the *heavens.

I received this quote in my social stream and it made me think a good deal of what I write about revolves around this subject. It encompasses the things no one in business should talk about – Religion, politics, and sex. Yet these three elements of the human condition drive all business.

An interesting observation is that much of this behavior has its equivalent in the world of animals. Although animals display these behaviors on a much simpler level. That is one reason animals can make a good model for understanding our own behavior.

Homo Sapien’s Warrior spirit is one of the biggest challenges humanity will need to overcome. Humanity’s willing to kill and be killed for what we hold dear #by god is a good strategy when fighting with sticks and hand axes. However, it becomes a bit less sustainable when people have the power of the sky god $Zeus, the power to create the apocalypse. As we develop better ways to kill large numbers of people perhaps we should begin to think about developing more tolerant and accepting social rules.

I am wishing you the very best in life,
