Once upon a time a lovely, very principled old woman lived in a society that was torn apart by civil war. There were more and more dead every week. She was personally endangered by the civil war, as were her friends, her family, and all of the people in her little village, all of whom worked for her company. Yet their work made them feel safe, because what they made was the very essence of a peaceful country life, a life as it should be.
She made a living making the most beautiful hunting rifles. She sold these hunting rifles in surprising numbers.
Inspired by this article, on ethical porn, which I saw tweeted by @nellbelleandme.
