ON WAR AND VIOLENCE

When these forces gain ascendancy, man cares neither morality nor rationality. Lured by the eluding charms, he becomes blind to the realities and turns a savage with unquenchable hunger for power and pelf. No scruples could abstain him from doing the deadliest crime. Murder and bloodshed that stagger the ordinary people by their ghastliness are nothing for him, perhaps as . easy and desirable as drinking 'coca-cola', during the summer. Ironically, the draught instead of quenching the thirst, intensifies it to a million-fold making him resemble the Melton's Satan to metamorphose himself into any shape from the sublimes to the vilest. Such a over-vaulting ambition ruins the possessor first, and he hesitates not to betray and his nearest and dearest, next. In order to reach his target, he hesitates not to betray his own allies, or the innocent and unsuspecting assistants. For him, the end is more important than the means. He indulges in nefarious activities and encourages such traits in others for his safety primarily. Guilt, intrigue, deceit, cruelty, crime, violence and barbarity, then form the foundation on which he stands and against which he dreams of leaning for ever.

Then 'self' dominates and makes him mad after power. He does not therefore, take cognizance of the existence of the same stuff in others, particularly of his accomplices and confidants, who by now stretch their hands claiming for booty.
