"It is tempting to regard the hunters as evil men, which they are not. They are simply men like the rest of us who have not yet realized in their own minds that the revolutionary transformation that has taken place in the world. They are still responding to the obsolete impulse of ancestors who lived in the wild word and pitted them against it. They are still responding to this impulse at a time when what represents the wild word has been reduced to a disorganized remnant of refugees, like human refugees from a city struck by disaster."
The Storm Petrel and the owl of Athena, Louis J. Halle
