Developing effective combat mindset and killer instinct is the most important aspect of tactical training.

Some believe this is something you have to be born with.
They say it cannot be developed. They are wrong. We are all born with it. It is the legacy of our ancestors. We just have to learn to overcome post-modern cultural conditioning to bring it back to the forefront of our options. Of course, the past of history may change course. The Republic may be restored peaceably, and you may never face violent physical danger. You may die of old age, peacefully in your bed, surrounded by a legion of loving children and grandchildren.Or, you may die face down in the mud on a wet, dark night, choking on your own blood and lung tissue, a burst of 7.62ラ51 through the chest, listening to the screams of your wife and children as a mob drag them off to a living hell. The choice is yours.

Your Say

If the tyke has been pussyfied from the beginning to report all teasing to his teacher/parents, to avoid all 'rough' games and to believe the police/government will protect them, they will wind up in the mud with a sucking chest wound.

Minor ass kickings as a lid teaches one to stand up for themselves and to kick ass. The name taking only becomes necessary if the lesson doesn't take the first time.

Don't start fights; don't lose fights keeps MOST trouble away from you.

I think many "non-violent" people would be capable of violence when confronted with a sufficiently extreme situation. The bigger problem is real-world incrementalism -- knowing the appropriate degree of force to use in a given situation, and recognizing the rarity of threats to your life while not being ignorant of them. Being too hesitant to use force may leave you a corpse in the mud, but being too quick to escalate can leave you the hot-headed nut doing hard time for plugging the drunken neighbor kid who was banging on your door.

Paranoia isn't any more attractive to me than becoming a statistic. The challenge is in being prepared without becoming a Nietzschean monster.

One of the first items of discussion in our tactical/survival instruction course is the fact that somewhere in the not too distant past every human alive today had ancestors who killed other human beings. This was done as a matter of survival. If somewhere in that history the cycle was broken you would not be here. The only instinct a human is BORN with is survival. Learn it and expand on it or die.
