A culture of passivity


Here’s my last word on the VT massacre. I wanted to emphasize this point because it’s something I think we need to pass onto our children. As usual, though, I’ll defer to a more articulate writer, in this case Mark Steyn:

    “We do our children a disservice to raise them to entrust all to officialdom’s security blanket. We should be raising them to understand that there will be moments in life when you need to protect yourself — and, in a “horrible” world, there may come moments when you have to choose between protecting yourself or others. It is a poor reflection on us that, in those first critical seconds where one has to make a decision, only an elderly Holocaust survivor, Professor Librescu, understood instinctively the obligation to act.”
