Post it all here! Let's fucking go!

After the Rittenhouse verdict, MSNBC cuts to Jacob Blake's uncle speaking. Except it's not Jacob Blake's uncle at all. This entire trial has been HUGE embarrassment for MSNBC. pic.twitter.com/udw4jB2afM

Not cavalier at all, if someone has bad intentions to kill and I have to defend myself then I have no problem to preserve my own life.

It's morality that dictates this as the assholes who rioted and had the prerogative to kill or injure others like they did in the past.

One of the things that our military had to do over the last 50 years or so was to teach our service people to dehumanize the enemy. Maybe that's the wrong phrase for it, but what they had to do was overcome our natural aversion to taking the life of a fellow human being. There is no reason to mock that natural aversion. It's healthy. Some people can't get over it though. And that's fine. Not everyone is wired the same. I have no problem with the idea of people like me serving in their place instead. What is odd, though, is encountering people who seem to display no such aversion at all. Sounds like a mental health problem to me.

Except, that's not the subject under discussion.

The subject under discussion is how it would feel. Afterwards. And you have no idea.

The one guy I asked one time, I should not have, but was young and dumb, had killed in Vietnam. And it was obvious to me that it affected him, and not in a good way. He didn't say he wouldn't do it again, because these were situations in which he had no choice.

But he obviously felt very bad about it.

I think that is due to ignorance, not mental health issues, if we're not talking about psychos, which, I believe, is relatively rare.

I think the people who say "no big deal" just don't know.

Maybe so. I'd like to think that.

As I said, it's like killing a cockroach, it's him or me living.

I didn't say you wouldn't do it. So would I. The instinct for survival is not a weak one.

What I am saying is you don't know how it would feel. And you don't. And that's a good thing. For you. IMHO.
