Evil intent

    As a fighter, I must resist the urge to kill. It grips the mind, the need to be the best. I must be mindful of my abilities, for ditruction of life and self, seems so easy. It's hard to control this need for evil, the intent to harm others. It is in the knowledge that I can, that I most certainly will not. What is the difference between physical power and the power over the minds of men? Both can be equally destructive, though they may be different, they are very much the same.

      self-control based on human compassion.  Choice.
      We all choose.  If something is too big a temptation, we can choose to extricate ourselves from that environment.  And/or exercise self-control within that environment.

    I have never felt the desire to hurt or kill someone.

    Perhaps you need some professional psychiatric help.

      I was a fighter anyway, kind of gave it up to teach. I preach pacifism to my students, I've seen first hand, the horrors of what can be done with such knowledge.
