Kali is a collection of tools, just as TNT can be used for demolition of a vacant building, it can also be used to do that demolition job while there are still occupants, it all depends on who holds the tools.
Totally agree. If I were going to do penetration tests, I would do it on my own stuff
or other people I know with their permissions
. For example, we can use kali linux tools to check for weak wifi passwords as their are many videos on cracking wifi.
