One of my heroes of the old West was "Liver Eatin' Johnson" whose pregnant wife was killed in retribution for his leading a government party into sacred Crow lands. He, thereafter, exacted his revenge one Brave at a time, and would then eat their raw liver. The TV show "Jeremiah Johnson" was a sanitized version of his story and was again, partially, told in the book and movie "Crow Killer". I read his life story as a young teen when I was handed a book about him.

"“Believe nothing merely because you have been told it. Do not believe what your teacher tells you merely out of respect for the teacher. But whatsoever, after due examination and analysis, you find to be kind, conducive to the good, the benefit, the welfare of all beings - that doctrine believe and cling to, and take it as your guide.” ~ Gautama Siddhartha — The Buddha

Any sufficiently advanced evil is indistinguishable from stupidity. ~ Unk (Paraphrase of Clarke's 3rd Law: "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.")
