I am reading a book right now named "Richard and John, Kings at War" by Frank McLynn. It is about Richard the Lionheart and his brother John of Magna Carta fame.
If you want to talk violence, there was a medeival society, no capitalism, no corporations, but one that was violent to the extreme. And I think the ancient Hebrews and Egyptians and Greeks and Persians was just like it.
We have nothing on these old guys in terms of violence. Actually, I think life is a heck of a lot more peaceful nowadays. Well mine is, hope yours is as well.
So we will just have to agree to disagree.
