The contrived macho men pump themselves up with steroids. Those steroids are powerful substances that influence emotional behavior. The over increase of such steroids in the body causes a whole, negative chain reaction. The body alters in more ways than just increasing muscle mass. It also changes the very structure and function of the brain. In addition to using steroids, many of the same people misuse other chemicals as well. They use inappropriate levels of psychotropic substances that also change the very structure and function of the brain in negative ways. It isn't difficult to run into quick trouble doing this.
The results are both negative and, seemingly at the time, positive. The negatives are ignored and even missed on account of the user's focus on the seeming positives of more muscle and endurance. The negative is that aggressive tendencies are increased as well. Judgment becomes impaired. The very reason for taking the substances is to lessen being a victim of physically mightier and more brutal individuals and to take their place at the top of that heap of mental error. What is termed "roid rage" is a common outcome.
Wrath gets out of control. The innocent become easy targets. The user becomes more and more the psychopath. Others are victims simply because those others are seen as weak and, therefore, worth less, if worth anything at all. Others become the means by which the psychopath grows his ego. Others exist for this purpose.
Might makes right is the error, and the Blackwater mentality falls right into this kind of antichrist spirit.
Their clients (including parts of the U.S. government in a huge, demonic way) have the money to pay (because they are takers) to be protected from all comers. The innocent bystanders become completely expendable, because they don't have the money to be likewise protected. So, along with physical might, money is the other most highly valued aspect.
As one ought readily to see, all things truly Christian are relegated to the bottom in the Blackwater world. Blackwater is a very telling microcosmic view of the evil path. The entire system that is facilitating Blackwater is the macrocosmic evil path. It is the wide path to Hell. Part of that macrocosmic evil spirit is seen historically in the acts of Nazi Germany. It is also seen today in Apartheid Israel.
Darth Vader is the extremely well-known character from the "Star Wars" movies. He went over to the "dark side." He fell to doing the Old Testament crime of Simeon and Levi (Genesis 34:25) only worse. Vader wiped out a whole village to avenge the death of one he loved. Consistent with what Jacob said about the actions of his two sons, Simeon and Levi, Vader stinks.
Killing a whole nation for the crimes of a few: Collective punishment
Yediot's editor Rafi Ginat has tried to restore moral balance. He asks (July 29): "What's wiser: To suffer the slaughter of our best fighters to prevent the slaughter of civilians in rural south Lebanon and be the most moral army in the world, or to erase villages used as Hezbollah terror motels, save the blood of our sons and be considered less moral?"
Adds Ginat, "Europe, the mother of all double standards, describes us anyway as destroyers of cities and murderers of children. ... The righteous who cry over the ruins of a Hezbollah building in Beirut remain silent over the ruins of the Cohen family home in Haifa. From their perspective we are never right; we are always immoral.... I have no problem considering myself less moral if it will save the life of one Golani soldier. For him I am ready to wash the Hezbollah terrorists with fire.... We are in the middle of a war, and this war must be won.... We need to strike hard — and we should be allowed to feel good about it."

So we see here in the words of Rafi Ginat the stink in the heart of so many of Israel, "instruments of cruelty," which his own father Jacob (Israel himself), removed only by generations, clearly rebukes, and even curses, prophesying against them.
And Jacob said to Simeon and Levi, Ye have troubled me to make me to stink among the inhabitants of the land, among the Canaanites and the Perizzites: and I being few in number, they shall gather themselves together against me, and slay me; and I shall be destroyed, I and my house.
Simeon and Levi are brethren; instruments of cruelty are in their habitations. (Genesis 34:30;49:5).
