Dealing With Aggressive Violence – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. Fox on February 24, 2018

As I have noted in the past, the best place to start in preparing yourself for self defense is Principals of Personal Defense by Jeff Cooper. It is short, sweet and, if you are lucky, a free PDF on somewhere the web.

As in most things, don’t rely on government for protection. Just the opposite.

This, then, is the practical solution for dealing with aggressive violence:

1. Accept that it is impossible to eliminate the means to inflict harm.
2. Accept that some people will seek to harm others.
3. Create in yourself and other decent people the ability to respond to predators with overwhelming counter violence.

History shows us that when people do not have the means to defend themselves, they will eventually suffer atrocities.

The moral argument is more cut and dried:

A human being is the absolute owner and sovereign over their body. As such, they have an absolute and inalienable right to defend themselves from aggression by others, by ANY means available or necessary, as long as those means do not harm other innocent people around them.
