Let’s face it; in our culture, criminals are cooler than people who hand in their assignments on time, floss twice daily and pay full price for their game software. I don’t know why this is, but I don’t think the answer would be very flattering.

You and your troops may be sorely tempted to deny them humane treatment as a result. But you must resist that temptation. Treat them humanely even though they don’t deserve it.
Posted on July 25, 2006 | No CommentsHow long has it been since a real knight was trained? You still hear all the time about the Queen of England knighting someone, or about an order of Knighthood doing this or that. But do these “knights” really practice chivalry?

But such practices are obsolete now days ... right?
