Who is braver
Allow me a final example. Who is braver: A student with
a cheat sheet, or a studious student without one?

The least technology advanced are considerably braver, but this does not make them right.
While you might not agree with their cause, they are willing to die for it even seeking it. A modern soldier tries their best not to get killed.

these are merely the opinion of romantic people who are stucked at the past when "everything is better in the past without technology", unfortunately life continues to develop and evolve, so does technology, and who can not catch up will extinct, no matter "how brave they are".....
avatar was a story about some primitives winning from technology advanced barbarians, our sympathy for these "brave" primitives are prolly one of the reasons such a movie with merely some good visuals and crappy story would break box office records.....

I think the Op is confusing bravery with fanaticism.

Choice of technique does not convey bravery or cowardice. If you have a man fighting unarmed, he does not become more or less brave when you hand him a gun.
Let's say a student takes a test on monday without a cheat sheet. Then on tuesday he takes a test with a cheat sheet.
Did he become cowardly?

I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea. I guess it all depends on the questions you ask.
I want to determine who is braver between an unarmed man who knows that his opponent has a gun, and the man with the gun who knows the other guy is unarmed.
I am putting reasons aside in this debate.
