Alexander asked the fellow [a captured pirate], “What is your idea in infesting the sea?” And the pirate answered, with uninhibited insolence, “The same as yours, in infesting the earth! But because I do it in a tiny craft, I’m called a pirate: because you have a mighty navy, you are called an emperor

Sacrifices were not an aberrant or cruel activity – they were a sophisticated way of dealing with the necessity of killing animals in order to eat. In fact the rituals surrounding sacrifice suggest that the Greeks felt some unease about killing animals they had reared themselves. So the illusion was created that an animal went to its death willingly and before the killing all present threw a handful of barley at it, as if the community as a whole was accepting responsibility for the death. At the moment of the slaughter women would utter impassioned cries, again a recognition of the seriousness of what was being done in taking life”.

Charles Freeman, The Closing of the Western Mind (probably the same true about other ancient cultures too – A.C.)

Blessed is he who learns how to engage in inquiry, with no impulse to harm his countrymen or to pursue wrong actions, but percieves the order of immortal and ageless nature, how it is structured.

Euripides, fifth century BC
