Violence can be the answer to a problem, not always, but sometimes it is appropriate. You don’t need my prepper precept to tell you that if someone is raping your wife, asking them to please stop is not as effective as a .45 caliber bullet traveling at his face at 1041 feet per second.
If you are unwilling or unable to fight for your beliefs and your liberty, you don’t have “rights” you have polite requests.
I am not a violent man, and I sure do not like to get physical with people in a violent manner. However, there is only so far I am willing to go before I stand up and say “stop” and without the ability and willingness to commit violence then saying stop is worthless as it is just an act of begging rather than an ultimatum.
If you resort to violence and it did not solve the problem, you did not use enough of it.
These precepts are my creed, and having prepper precepts guides me when I face tough choices. A wise man once told me that when facing a moral problem, the right choice is usually the action you don’t want to take.
I am not a pollyanna person that is wishy washy or blindly follows rules, heck I have a little rebellious streak and love to know the WHY of rules, but I do respect and understand the need for law and know how vital it is for a society to have a moral code.
By knowing what I believe in you can know how I will act. This is very important in times of stress. If you don’t want to read these precepts one by one, the completed list can be found here: Completed 27 Prepper Precepts.
