There's really not much which I can add to this essay.
"Violence and brutality are as much a part of humanity as intelligence and socialization. It is the universal drive of civilization to contain these instincts, to redirect them into more productive channels, to convince people to live within a set of rules. But no matter how civilized, no society has eliminated them, nor will one. The society that forgets this is the society that falls to the barbarian hordes."
Other than to say that it is truly breathtaking in it's scope, clarity and force of reason.
As for myself, I shall post it in it's entirety at my shooting club's bulleten board, and at every gun store I frequent.
Not to mention a copy to give to every hand-wringing GFW out there I deal with on an ongoing basis. Yeah, it may be spittin' in the wind.
But if it helps even one of 'em to get it, then it's paper and ink well spent.
I needed the reminder.
