“The fiercest warriors, do not carry a sword to the battlefield; instead, they are armed with wisdom.”
― RJ Intindola
A sword is said to be an extension of the one who wields it.
A gun or a pen are merely tools, instruments in the hands of a person and as such neither good nor evil. They leverage the capability of the individual, for good or ill.
There is an old martial arts saying that youth and enthusiasm will always be defeated by experience and wisdom. The little slip of an old man (or woman) with not tens of thousands but a hundred thousand hours of study is untouchable and dangerous beyond the comprehension of those without training, capable of immense violence but at total peace with themselves and the world around them. This is true power.
