Twitter set off the Arab Spring that cost the lives of hundreds of thousands despite its positive intentions. Wars broke out and people had to fight for what they believed in. Faced with a similar situation could you do the same?

I don't think I could bring myself to kill another person unless in defense of myself or my family. That said I think I would though you never really know until it happens.

You never really know. One moment you are eating a piping hot pineapple and Apple pizza, the next you are paralyzed from the neck down by blowfish poison darts.

The only problem with that is you're eating pineapple pizza.

only if i had to and i have no qualm about killing to protect people i love.

I have stabbed a kid in the throat nearly once (stopped one centimetre away because i didn't want to deal with the police...) because he spent all of high school bullying me and i had enough he learnt to never do it again.

I have kicked a girl in the face before in self defence knowing full well it could kill her i don't have issues with fighting women if i need to.

Mix that in with the fact over the last 3 years out of school i have been working on being able to numb my emotions and empathy (i can pretty much dull them so much i don't feel them until later) and the fact i can dehumanise someone and not feel guilty about hurting them in self defence (or just attacking them but i have never done that) i know i would be able to kill.

That being said i'm against killing unless needed....i would never hurt a *human being and never will notice the * before human being i mean my perception of them being human...if they attack me or someone i love i no longer register them as human i can detach myself from feelings towards someone like that.


So in short yeah but not unless i really had to and in the end it's still best to run away and hide and live UNLESS it means becoming a slave or something of the sorts.

In which i would argue tactically running away to gather an army is much for smarter then charging in alone.

I like to think that my answer is yes. iam unfit and a bit out of shape, bad lower back and havnen't got bugger all experience with guns but yes i would rather fight than cower and watch my people die and i'd rather die than submit.
But never experiencing anything like that i guess you cannot be certain on how you would react.

Sure, I've done it before in defence of the ideals my nation holds dearest . And while it took me a few fire fights to get use to the both the sound of a weapon firing and the fact I was putting people in the sights of a rifle I now have no qualms about doing it again.

Having said that though even I will admit I have a distinct advantage when it comes to having to fight. I have a life time of experience, training , and a mindset suited to combat. As a soldier I am perhaps a little overeager for the fight , and while that desire has yet to kill me my scars are proof I've come close too far often. At the same time I can fight with a clear conscious , there isn't anyone praying for me . No one will weep at my grave and so the concept of possibly dying doesn't bother me unduly.

I am a soldier and the concepts of sacrifice , duty, and fortitude are ones I hold dear enough to lay my life on the line. After all if not me then who? Someone else would just muck it up.

I feel that this conversation carried on from another thread. Therefore I too shall comment on it.

...Death to all pineapple pizza lovers!
