Thrown Away, by Rudyard Kipling

A very sad tale about a young soldier and his path to suicide:

Thrown Away, by Rudyard Kipling

Questions:

1) Is Kipling's argument about the dangers of "the sheltered life system" valid?



2) Are the actions of Kipling and the Major justified? Would the circumstances mean that their illegal and normally unethical plan is morally okay?
