    Do you include Shinto in Buddhism as the samurais' religion? Are they so indistinct and overlaying?

    As for warfare and religion mingling, some old warning against relying on divine aid:

    Loki spake:
    22. "Be silent, Othin! | not justly thou settest
    The fate of the fight among men;
    Oft gavst thou to him | who deserved not the gift,
    To the baser, the battle's prize."

    Happy Wednesday.

    Freedom is not just a word. 'Freedom' is a noun.
