Which would be safer to kick?

 Sometimes, we read about psychopaths who abuse animals before turning to humans. Strangely, most of them go after bunnies, kittens, puppies and other helpless creatures. very few of them seek the challenge of trying to abuse bulls, full-grown large dog breeds or wolverines.

But sarcasm aside, be sure to read all the way to the bottom. There is a serious message here. Predators prey on the weak. — jtl, 419

Sometimes, we read about psychopaths who abuse animals before turning to humans. Strangely, most of them go after bunnies, kittens, puppies and other helpless creatures. very few of them seek the challenge of trying to abuse bulls, full-grown large dog breeds or wolverines.

The Betrayed: On Warriors, Cowboys and Other MisfitsThat makes sense: kicking a large, dangerous animal would open up a world of hurt. It’s much safer to abuse species without substantial natural defenses.

What if the bully couldn’t tell a regular bunny from the Monty Python bunny? Either the predation would be abandoned or a disproportionate amount of care and resources would have to be devoted to the quest to victimize the creature. It’s the same with the selection of human victims: genocidal maniacs tend to target those they perceive as weak and inoffensive.

The Essence of Liberty: Volume I: Liberty and History: The Rise and Fall of the Noble Experiment with Constitutionally Limited Government (Liberty and ... Limited Government) (Volume 1) The Essence of Liberty: Volume II: The Economics of Liberty (Volume 2) The Essence of Liberty: Volume III: A Universal Philosophy of Political Economy (Liberty: A Universal Political Ethic) (Volume 3)On the other hand, the weak and the inoffensive — humans and well as bunnies — often do nothing in the face of danger and just hope to be overlooked. Humans often assume that struggling “would make it worse” and go along with relocation to a secondary crime scene, with being disarmed, with all the obvious preparations for rape and murder because of false hope, or because they erroneously think that family would suffer more if they resist. In reality, the kind of fiends who would execute innocent people for the resistance of others would as willing to commit murder without an excuse.

Easy victim or a fighter waiting for a chance to draw?

The well-document plight of the European jews during WW2 is an obvious example. All along the path to destruction, these people were hoping for a more reasonable explanation for the events. After all, who in their right mind would have guessed that mass murder based on ethnicity or religion would happen on such a wide scale? And once the victim is stripped to underwear and marched to the nearest ravine, what’s there to do?

Recently, a presidential candidate said that more guns in the hands of Jews would have made a difference. Media outlets aligned with the authoritarian regimes criticised that view as idiotic. You tell me, do you think that encountering hundreds of thousands of armed individuals among the millions who ultimately perished would have made no difference? Would Nazi collaborators have been as eager to go after a people of which one in five or ten would readily shoot them? Could a couple of soldiers with bolt action rifles herd a hundred civilians into a ditch and force them to strip if they had to worry about half-dozen pistols hidden somewhere in that crowd?

A pocket 25ACP isn’t much of a weapon — but a great deal better than nothing. It can be hidden almost anywhere.

The pistol is only a 6.35mm (25ACP), weak and short-ranged…would you still take it seriously as a threat? I thought so. Now imagine being tasked with herding a crowd or civilians to their deaths and having to worry about several of your victims just waiting for a chance to back shoot you.

Pistols are weak. Making sure the foe is dead is prudent and worth an extra shot.

This is how the events should have gone. But they didn’t. Many Jews were too poor to afford any weapon. Even more could but were too law-abiding to get one illegally. Those who did have them legally, like the Olympic champion Alfred Flatow, turned them in when ordered in 1938 and were subsequently murdered. Those who did manage to get armed and organized fared much better.

Americans today aren’t operating under the same handicaps. We can afford guns and training, most of us do not live in states with registration of firearms and, most importantly, we know that our government can and does routinely act criminally. If federal or local governments escalate the degree of repression as they have recently done in Boston and less recently in New Orleans, there’s a greater ability and more ready will to resist. With luck, the lack of resemblance between the American population at large and helpless bunnies just ripe for victimization would dissuade Washington from even trying.

“It can never happen here.” Oh, really? Remember American Indians and the imprisoned Japanese-Americans? We can, based on historic precedents, consider any effort to disarm a group of people or even an individual as intent either to subjugate or to murder after the victim is stripped of defenses. Today, the round-ups are far more likely to go along the political divides than among ethnic or religious lines, but that would be of scant comfort to the victims. Get a weapon. Learn to use it. Be a well-prepared peace-monger.

About Land & Livestock Interntional, Inc.

Land and Livestock International, Inc. is a leading agribusiness management firm providing a complete line of services to the range livestock industry. We believe that private property is the foundation of America. Private property and free markets go hand in hand—without property there is no freedom. We also believe that free markets, not government intervention, hold the key to natural resource conservation and environmental preservation. No government bureaucrat can (or will) understand and treat the land with as much respect as its owner. The bureaucrat simply does not have the same motives as does the owner of a capital interest in the property. Our specialty is the working livestock ranch simply because there are so many very good reasons for owning such a property. We provide educational, management and consulting services with a focus on ecologically and financially sustainable land management that will enhance natural processes (water and mineral cycles, energy flow and community dynamics) while enhancing profits and steadily building wealth.
