Bly: No Longer a Warrior

“[Robert] Moore emphasizes that the quality of a true warrior is that he is in service to a purpose greater than himself: that is, to a transcendent cause. Mythologically, he is in service to a True King. If the King he serves is corrupt, as in Ollie North’s case, or if there is no king at all, and he is serving greed, or power, then he is no longer a warrior, but a solider.”

– Robert Bly, Iron John (p. 150)
