ME: Good fences make good neighbours remember? Everyone fends for himself. Why do we need borders, the military and the national anthem if it were free for all to plunder?
MIRROR: What is the difference then, between the animals and humans? To each is own. You own whatever land you land on, until you cannot defend it. So you form an army and hail them as martyrs. To what end? Defending humans from humans?
ME: Remember the Mumbai attacks? You have to gaurd yourself in waters where sharks prowl. As much as you may like to believe otherwise, or hope rather, this is not like the world somewhere over the rainbow. Pragmatism is the catchword, not romance.
MIRROR:So its all about survival isn't it? A human life is more precious than that of a hundred red ants. Pragmatism allows you to buy guns while letting many a child sleep hungry at night. Is that what we call security? Guard your self until you cannot tell the shark from the fishes?
ME: Ah! And we think that it is about morality.
