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
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.
