I don't understand.  You seem to blame everybody here?

Same as anything else.  I've had to rebuild some of it in recent
years.  I see how our minds and bodies arise from the natural world as
precious and sacred.  When I need guidance, I would ask something wild
and ancient, and think on how my situation is similar to what it knows
well.  I've spent most of my life programming computers.

Another facet of it is the laughable idea that 'revenge', actually self-defense, is bad. The christian version goes as far as to tell people to 'turn the other cheek' so that christian govcorp can massacre its vitctims more easily.

Anyway, obviously self defense is good because it increases your
safety, and revenge is bad because it increases your danger.  Living
systems don't die because you punch them: they engage their own
defense processes, and now see you as a larger danger.

It's hard to tell what you do or don't disrupt here ...

You don't sound very anarchist here regarding older survivors.  I'm
assuming that people who became authority-like didn't really survive.

So what are you fighting for?  Random fighting looks dangerous to me;
I haven't experienced too much.  Obviously fighting together in some
way is needed to defend a threatened community.  It doesn't usually
look like harm.

Yeah I'll definitely defend people wrongly suffering for crimes.

I grew up among USA media, so I have USA learning, and then I got
isolated and brainwashed by (guessing) USA interests, so I have forced
USA habits.  Am I a US government agent?

I dunno, nobody like overtly told me this.  I don't know whether it's
the government.

Many people do have the experience you describe, though.  These people
probably can't really say that they do very easily.

You sound like law enforcement here, Juan.

>         that's a different thing. Imprisoning people for theft is wrong, see the liberal analysis. Thieves have to return what they stole i.e. restitution. And your analogy is wrong too.

You sound frustrated?  Restitution sounds a lot nicer than punishment
to me, not sure I've heard the word much before.  In USA law we have a
defense where crime is okay if there is an emergency reason.  It's not
used a lot, usually you just hope the cop likes you, and you can get
through it in different good or bad ways.
