"Man is wolf to men."

Freud used the ancient Latin saying as the foundation of his "Civilisation and its Discontents."

By the way, after finishing a re-reading of Lonesome Dove, I am interested in more reading on the time and place. Have you read "Empire of the Summer Moon"? I think it was a finalist for the Pulitzer in on-fiction a year or so ago. It seems worthwhile.
