This seems to be a question that is mostly being responded to by Americans, which has sort of skewed the question from 'Would you kill for your
Government?' to, 'Would you kill for the US Government?'!
I'm a New Zealander, and I'm going to respond to the former question.
I've always thought that I could handle being a spy or an assasin. I've got one of those minds that clicks right into 'do it now and do it right'
mode when in a threatening or high-adrenaline situation. Even though I'm quite a small guy, I've never been beaten in a fight, because when I'm
threatened or challenged every inch of me freaks right into kick-ass mode. I usually end up scaring any attacker away.
SOme people are unlucky, and don't know how to manage their adrenaline when it hits you like that. It spoils their train of priority, and It leaves
them shaken and disturbed. I feel sorry for these people.
I'm not scared of anyone.
So how come I've never gone somewhere, like the SAS or the militiary, and 'proved' myself, got my brain into further training, got my hands onto
some cool weapons, and gone out to kill on their behalf?
Because I don't agree with killing for anyone else but myself. Perhaps if paid enough, I would kill. But this is because the ca$h is for... ME. =)
Much like other people have said in this thread... I would only kill in self-defence. This is why I said SPY/Covert (meaning non-killing, purely under
the radar recon) first, and assassin second. I would kill any one that would seek to bring immediate harm to me or those that I love. If I wasn't
there to defend my loved ones, and one of them met an unfortunate demise, I'd be out for blood.
Well, not only 'blood'. Justice. I would want to take them down, and bring them to justice. First I would seek them. I'd only kill @ this point if
my life was threatened. Otherwise I'd have them beaten, bound and tied, and the cops called. (If, indeed, the cops would do what I'd want them to
do, and take them to the court, and jail for a very long time)
It seems people assume that if the 'government' asks you to kill someone, that means you gotta kill someone 'bad'. Like, a terrorist. What if
it's the government that's bad, and they want to hush-kill someone that can do them damage? I tell you what! Not only would I not want to kill
someone to protect the government from gettin' in the shti, I'd take the contract, find this person and then HELP them inflict their damage! (This
is presuming that I am trained to defend myself against the 'wrath' of government!)
some people want to save the world. some people want to destroy the world.
i just want to b the person that can foil everbody's planz!
This is because some people who say they're tryin' to save the world are actually destroying it, and those who are tryin' to destroy the world (or
parts of it) think they're saving the world! It's screwed up man!
i think tat every single person is selfish. (including me, for those of you who will think that I'm just pointin' the finger @ every body else BUT)
We're all selfsih, we're ALL in pursuit of our own agenda, and so this might include others or even caring about others, but this is just so we can
say to ourselves that we care about others, for our OWN selfish endeavours.
Democracy is stupid, because all political parties do is convince as many people as possible that they will be cared for if they ally, but this is not
the case. If you ally, it makes the people that are bigger than you BIGGER, stronger and they reap. If you stand under ANY BODY ELSE'S Umbrella,
you're seeking to be controlled.
Which is why I say, killing for my government, or any body elses', is not the highest on my priority list. It depends how big of a favour I'm doing
for myself that will induce my actions. I care about nobody else.
