Scripture:The Pali Cannon AN 1: xvii

That sounds like the way every time somebody come up with a new invention to help people, the military looks for ways to turn it into a weapon. This is why real spiritual teachers limit what they put in writing or teach in public to only the basics. The advanced material is taught only to those of the proper view who are ready to use such knowledge wisely.
