One edge of the sword can cut against poverty, illness, disease and give us more democracies, and democracies never war with other democracies, but the other side of the sword could give us nuclear proliferation, biogerms and even forces of darkness.
The weapon of the advocate is the sword of the soldier, not the dagger of the assassin.
