10.4.1803: “Tremendous times in Europe! How mighty this battle of lions and tigers! With what sensations should the common herd of cattle look on it? With no partialities, certainly. If they can so far worry one another as to destroy their power for tyrannizing, the one over the earth, the other the waters, the world may perhaps enjoy peace, till they recruit again.
This is a Ro-R attitude where the usual prey of tyranny stand aside watching the predatory nations destroy each other, this is like Y prides of lions fighting over territory and injuring each other allowing the prey to increase in numbers.
