ON WAR AND VIOLENCE

If he sees any sign of `self' rising in his own trusted lieutenants, he ruthlessly tries to trample it with his iron feet. As long as they serve his fancies, he pats them on their back only to nod their heads at his behest. If they seek their own interests in imitation of their model master, then arises the trouble, competition then enters among themselves as in inevitable consequence.

Competition calls for the latent best for survival. In the scuffle, mental and physical abilities are tapped into service as lavishly as possible. The mightiest i.e., the cruelest stands firm, comes out triumphant and gets credit. The victor establishes his supremacy soon. This ignoble and ill-gotten success adds fuel to the fire of his bloated ambition. Wrapped thus in such unstable fame, the `victor' sharpens his weapons for further conquests. For, this is the only field where the 'full stop' is banished for ever, 'comma' permeates this region. When that blind ambition goes unheeded, unbounded and unreasoned, gloom prevails everywhere, even in the domain of the owner.
