I am currently reading the second book in The Camulod Series by Jack Whyte. This is about the end of the Roman occupation in Britain leading up to the story of King Arthur and the Knights of the round table.
Throughout history there has always been someone invading someone elses lands and property. Some group of people thinking that they know better than their neighbors or some religious group that forces their beliefs on "the heathens". People fight back in defense of their rights or property.. sometimes they win, sometimes they lose.
This shows me that life isn't always fair. But what is it that drives people to force themselves on someone else? I guess we have been trying to figure that out for centuries!
I think it's greed. Or a sense of "we're better then you."
Why can't we all just get along? Or is this just a flaw that we all have to live with in each other?
