One of the best RMT's I've ever heard! It makes you think about what place violence has in a society, how even a peaceful one must rely on it to some degree. Made me think that perhaps the only thing that separates a primitive society from a 'mature' one is the degree to which it will admit that fact

What does a society based on pacifism do with those citizens with an inherently violent nature? This society has found a solution—they are shipped off into deep space, where they act as Earth's sole defense in a war against alien invaders. See also 'Soldier Boy' (X Minus One)
