Do you think they wanted to be peasants? They didn't have the money to be a knight or warlord. Nor did they have any education of warfare. And those who were knights or warlords where noble people. And most people were not born in an noble familie. So the people didn't have much choice than to be farmers.

Oh, btw. People still gets massacreded in the thousands on a regular basis but because of that not everyone on this globe joins the military.

Glad you asked that question. Here's a step by step dissection fo the topic.

---------------------------------------------
1.Scorpius posted incorrect information:
Other sources have stated,though, that the Rakshasas, who frequently peopled the numerous epic poems of ancient India, were in fact the negroid race of barbarians inhabiting the southern part of India before the conquest of the country by the Aryans.

2.I corrected him:
Of course you know that the race that lived in India before the invasion of the Aryans were a city-dwelling people with advancements surpassing the Egyptian civilization of the same period.

3.an0n made a dumb comment:
Yeah, and the Aryans still kicked their asses. Wo0t.  

4.I pointed out the error in his argument:
What do you expect? They were mainly farmers!

5.an0n made another stupid, uninformed comment:
