There's a saying involving types of people, it goes to say that there are only 3 kinds of people. the first kind is 90% of the population world wide. This group is too weak, believe themselves to be too morally sound, or are just plain too ignorant of the reality's of the world to take precautions against the dangers of the world or even defend themselves. These people are your rape victims, the dead people being mentioned on tonights daily news, the neighbor whose house got robbed while he was in it. This group is known as prey.
9% of the population that isn't prey are those who see the opportunity to gain from prey, to feed from prey and forcibly take what it wants from prey, usually just forms of livelihood, but up to and including the prey's life. This group is known as the predators.
Mathematically speaking there is now only 1% left. This all too small group of people are those among the world who refuse to be either, who by one means or many means refuses to be prey, but, despite having all of the capabilities of being a predator, refuses to exist at such a base level of humanity. They are those who come running when they hear a scream, a cry for help, they are those who run into a burning building when help hasn't yet arisen, they are those who defend themselves, kinfolk and livelihoods, as well as their neighbors', they may be preyed upon by an unsavi predator, but the predator will likely regret his choice of lifestyle. This group refuses to turn a blind eye to the world, as it refuses to be a part of a system that practically caters towards predators. This group has many names. They are Patriots, they are hero's, riflemen and pistoleers, law abiding citizens, or this nations first and last line of defense. This forum's member's are mostly of this class.
