Warriors & Soldiers

LastWarrior3_1030428
Too many soldiers and too few warriors.

 

(The word soldier has its roots in the Latin word for coin. A soldier was paid to fight.
Warrior comes from a word for confusion. A warrior threw himself into the confusion to struggle for his people.)

love pulls us together.”

    Thanks for the comment.
    Both words, soldier and warrior, have adopted several meanings and connotations since their origins. My little comment was an attempt to point out the difference between SOLDIERS, those who are paid to fight or who are forced to follow orders and fight, as opposed to WARRIORS who throw themselves into the fight for the sake of truth, justice, freedom and the people in their community. In other words, do we fight for the rulers or the people? Do we follow our conscience or orders from above?

    What about Coup Warriors, Mercenaries, Fanatics (like Crusaders)? Where they fall in this definition?Or there needs to be an amendment to the post?
