Give me all your money and women. NOW!
I understand your point, but it just isn't realistic. I have a guy in my Mason's lodge that feels the same way. He was in Vietnam and Korea, and
he is now a 100% pacifist, and he says he won't fight under any circumstance. We tease him all the time, but of course we don't mean it, but what
if we did? He builds classic cars, he has a lot of very nice ones, and he has a pretty 20 year old daughter, and he has a very nice home. What if
someone decided to just take it? He says he would give it up willingly, but would he really? His wife and daughter? His home? Sure he could call
the police, but the bad guys would be long gone by then. Maybe the police can help, maybe not. Could someone really just stand by and let their
loved ones be kidnapped or killed?
I'll never be a pacifist. When I die someday, I don't want it to be in a hospital bed, or in my sleep. I love life too much. I want there to be
blood when I go. I don't care if I'm eaten by a shark, or killed by enemies, or killed by friends, or set adrift on an ice boat. As long as I'm
conscious and looking death in the face when it comes.
