People can make the argument that the current generation is soft. Instead of solving things the old fashioned way between men, they resort to sneak attacks and the use of dangerous tools as equalizers. Winning is winning no matter the method, even if it was cheating or cheap.
It may be people just looking it through with rose tinted glasses, but honorable duels are now a thing of the past. Who do not have a societal system in place to settle grudges or feuds. It is a rarity to see males settling things the old fashioned way and then shaking it out afterwards as a sign of respect.
