Who were their enemies and what did they actually want to gain from those fights? Food, water, land, and other precious stuff. They got trained to fight against the enemy to grab what they want, no matter if they had to finish the enemy.
In today’s modern time, children are still free to play and they enjoy playing as much as they want. With the passage of time, when they grew up, they have been inducted into the educational institutions to get their degrees.
What these degrees are actually all about and what do people get out of it? People got trained to fight against the enemy to grab what they want, no matter if they had to finish the enemy.
Same thing as ancient times.
Today, degree holders are recruited in the organizations who require them to go out and grab the food, money, land, and other stuff. They work in the same manner as in ancient times. The only difference is their arms, their ammunition.
The competition is still the same. The tradition of slavery remains in our societies.
