Tweva, so sorry for your loss. I have no doubt that he went knowing that he had a significant impact in your life and most likely the lives of many others.
Thanks for posting this, looks like an interesting book. I can see how someone that is following this type of philosophy would get a bit exasperated with the typical “news” of the moment as that could be yet another distractor from the concentration of set goals. So…no need for apologies on stirring up a debate on the postings. It works for you and it’s good to see all sides – this adds some context to the previous debate. Although I enjoy the different stories, on the other side I could sure use some additional concentration to keep balanced and accomplish the goals I set in an appropriate time frame.
Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.
