Selco, very true. That is exactly right and why I grieve over the fact that so many of our “western thinkers” are getting their frame of reference from the movies and TV. That is where that “honorable duel” idea comes from.
Even the tiniest bit of exposure to bad people and violence and people quickly adapt their thinking – either that or they don’t survive. That is why when I see people talking about these “Hollywood” type of scenarios with “noble warrior” reactions they are going to have – it is a clue that they have been surfing the internet and watching TV too much.
