    Social darwinism is much like Kronos a cruel master. It eats its subjects.

    People would live happily ever after, eating bacon and singing songs of joy. Murder would be a thing of the past, as would anger and hate and prejudice. Death would be destroyed.


    Oh wait, that means Jesus came back. That is the only way that guns will be destroyed.

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

    Isaiah 2:4 New International Version (NIV)

    4 He will judge between the nations
    and will settle disputes for many peoples.
    They will beat their swords into plowshares
    and their spears into pruning hooks.
    Nation will not take up sword against nation,
    nor will they train for war anymore.

    Yeppers - you reacted to exactly one point - obviously not intended to mean every one (really, how many people do you think are gonna build a trebuchet, let alone try to aim it at a school yard - so how 'generally ' could the set be?). I treated your hypothetical seriously - but you didn't extend the same courtesy to me.

    So the whole thing was just a gotcha, exactly as it appeared to begin with. Lesson learned, I won't ever give you that benefit of the doubt again.

    Unsubscribing.

    Ma'am if I may what I said is also more complex than one may think.
    You bring up a resurgence of melee combat. With that resurgence I see some things. One of those being the ideas of a resurgence of some interesting philosophical positions some good some evil.
    One would be something akin to the honorable knight. Another would be something akin to Munenori's concept of the life giving and death dealing sword. Another would be justice equals might as Thrysmachus claimed in the Republic.

    As Marcus Aerulias said " It is folly to not expect evil people to do bad things". I have no doubt that good and evil people would exist in this scenario. They exist in reality after all.

    I also want to apologize. I have knee jerk responses against those who don't like weapons. I have no doubt you and I care deeply about life.

    Been there done that. Hurled a chunk of concrete weighing nearly 200 lbs. the length of a football field.

    I'm always still in trouble again
