Well, I do not know, if Confucius really did say something along the following quote, but some days ago reading  I stumbled over it and it immediately rang something back in my mind, namely the good old question if pew-pew is the only valid way to play Eve. Here it goes:
“In Confucian terms, merchants were like soldiers. Those drawn to a career in the military were assumed to be driven by a love of violence. As individuals, they were not good people, but they were necessary to defend the frontiers. Similiarly, merchants were driven by greed and basically immoral…”
Plainly spoken, high sec traders are as bad as the null sec fighters and the low sec pirates. Then, the only pure and innocent souls left in Eve may be the miners, for the quote does not speak about them.
