Robbers

In ancient times there used to exist communities of robbers, who considered themselves entitled to rob the caravans passing through their territory.
Their morals and principles were such that if one of their victims said, «All I possess I will give you, if you will only let me go,» they would say, «No, I wish to see the blood of your hand.» They did not let him go without hurting him.
The idea was, as they said, «We do not accept anything from you; we are not beggars, we are robbers. We risk our lives in our profession. We are brave, and therefore we are entitled to do what we do.»
It was the same with some of the sea pirates. They believed their profession to be a virtuous one, and from that thought, they became kings. The same people, when small, were robbers; but when they became great, they were kings.
