interesting discussion


I’m participating in a discussion over at bullshido.net that may be interesting for a few of you to take a look at. The thread can be read from here:

The topic of conversation is Jack Hoban’s use of Robert L Humphrey’s “Warrior Creed” in his 1988 book “Ninpo: Living and Thinking As a Warrior”. The creed is:

The Warrior Creed
By Dr. Robert L. Humphrey
(Iwo Jima Marine)

Wherever I go,
everyone is a little bit safer because I am there.

Wherever I am,
anyone in need has a friend.

Whenever I return home,
everyone is happy I am there.

It’s a better life!

Some readers have interpreted Hoban’s use of the creed to mean that wannabe Ninjas should stalk the streets making everyone safer. I’m giving the author the benefit of the doubt. Take a read and tell me what you think.
