Well, perhaps the doubters are right and I am wrong.  Perhaps Marr did arrange to have himself beaten to the point where he suffered facial fractures which had the potential to damage his eyesight, threaten his life, or even kill him.

Maybe there is something for us to learn here

I guess the only question that remains is if we can meet the dedication that Marr has apparently demonstrated in arranging the beating he took.

For myself, I reluctantly admit that I'll stick to letter writing, informing others, legally monkeywrenching the system, and bugging my MP.  I don't have the courage that Marr and our volunteers have, to willingly submit to those kind of injuries in hopes of getting a one day soundbyte in the news.

One major difference between "us" and "them" is that we are coming from a position that is both morally and (through various items such as common-law, bills of rights, constitutions, etc.) legally strong, whereas our opponents do not.  Generally, those with the moral/legal high ground do not stoop to deceit, whereas with our opponents, without a logical leg to stand on, can rely on nothing but.

Unfortunately, there sometimes comes a time when we feel that we MUST stoop to the same level as our opponent, as that is all they will understand. If it were not so, there would be no reason to carry a firearm for self defence. Again, the difference is that we are more likely to keep things "civilized" for as long as possible.
