J.R.R. TOlkiens in his "Lord of the Rings" writes about Numenors, There are three classes to people, High men of the west, Numenoreans, Middle peoplw, Men of the twilight, such as Rohirrim and the wild, Men of Darkness.
And then he talks that now the High Numenoreans who were enhanced in arts and gentleness have become more like the middle men, wa they also love war and valour as things good in themselves, both a sport and an end. "
We see this happening thruout our history that the highest honour is given to war and valour as ean end in itself. But this should be held as merely means to keeping the peace.
But if you look at the current situation the actors and entertainers - who are "pretending" most of the time - are on the pedstel. What does it say about us as people?
