The standard mantra is that one is more probable to meet their maker defending themselves then fighting. Criminals are predators who select those least likely to fight back . They are not martial artists or superhumans in any description. They depend on stealth and guile in the USA. In the UK 50% of all roberies are commited while people are inside their homes compared to 13% in the United States. This number
would probably be lower if places like NYC where gun ownership is restricted and taken out of the mix. A criminal plying his trade in Vermont outside of the Burlington area would end up in a box in short order.
There is a large French population in Vermont. Most of my coworkers were perplexed about the car burnings in France. Where is the honor amongst the French ? The perplexed were of French ancestry and disgusted with the behavior of the French. Such behavior would not be tolerated in Vermont or in most parts of the USA. I live in an area where everyone knows whose car belongs to whom. They know who lives where and exactly what everyone does for a living. Much of my initial interaction with law enforcement was their attempt to figure out what this stranger is doing in their area
at four AM. I behaved in typical NYC fashion keeping to myself as much as possible and this created a mystery.
The answer lies in a disasterous conditioning and PC brainwashing amongst the Europeans . First of all any discussion of root causes is pointless. Playing into grievances of minorities is pointless at best and nutures resentment at worst. Thus we have the Europeans paternalistically placating Abdul's grivences and giving him payola while patting him on the head. The root cause argument is a dead end game that amounts to capitutation. The vermin that smacked a plane into were not motivated by anything other then a warped view of humanity fostered by jihadism. The crook that robs your house did not spend hours reading WEB Dubois or It takes a Village. Examining political motivations of criminal behavior is a waste of time . The ultimate form of rationalization was some far left types accused Leon Klighoffer of provoking terrorists in NYC. I have heard all of the haiography for convicted killer Tookie Williams. I wonder if the same people will give General Butt Naked of Liberia the same pass . They probably will not give Joshua Milton Blayhi aka General Butt Naked a free pass because he is an evangelist. The Beak does not hesitate to point out Butt Naked should be tried as a war criminal and punished accordingly.
Poe correctly points to the loss of honor in a society conditioned to be passive. This passivity is unhealthy and far left types require it to build their utopia.
This subject will be dealt with in depth as Poe describes it at length in his conclusions.
