A sledge hammer is oddly specific. I expect I'd interpret that as more a threat to my person, but I'd hardly consider it the average 'attack' on a car. If someone 'attacks' my car by throwing rubbish at it I'm not inclined to find my person at risk, no matter how much I'm in the interior of the car. Rather as I'm not liable to shoot someone for egging my clothes, I guess.
I would identify with the rationalists position as I briefly outlined as in equality of respect for people.
Duly noted. Could you elaborate on what you consider the rationalist position to be? I've heard various accounts; none persuasive, to my mind.
I shall give it considered thought later as time is against me
Fine, and fair enough.
The current protests were entirely peaceable and non-destructive until agents of the state used percussive grenades and chemical warfare against people exercising their right to protest for redress of grievances against the state (as well as against people who weren't even participating in the protests). You should be more worried about state facsism than the isolated acts of a few people looting and burning. But you're not, because you don't actually give a shit about liberty. Y'all fucking faux liberty and democracy fucks can fuck off.
We'll have to leave our disagreements on the finer points unresolved, I suspect. You're not liable to want to read my novel either. ;) I'll consider the Freeborn book, although I've never heard their name in the self-defense circles I run in before and can't find anything about them that's not from their self-promotion website. Could be an interesting auto-bio, at least. Thanks for elaborating on your recommendation.
