As Long As we’re Allowed to Nag About Extremism…

“Do you have to keep nagging about extremism? Seriously, no one is saying they’re going to start concentration camps or anything!”

“Yeah, Hitler didn’t win the german election on a program of world war, holocaust and the total destruction of Germany… however, given that he ended up taking his life in a bunker, I’m going to say not even he knew the final result of his political agenda.”

“You’re talking about something that isn’t going to happen again!”

“With a little luck… at least not as long as we’re allowed to nag about the consequences of that kind of thinking…”

Three rules of self-defense

Here are my three simple rules of self-defense. They can be applied without any self-defense training, only using a little common sense:

  1. Avoid places and situations where you need to defend yourself
  2. Move away from places and situations where you need to defend yourself, run if necessary
  3. If someone surprise attacks you, parry/break free using whatever technique you have at your disposal (hit them with your umbrella!), then see rule 2.

If you feel this limits your freedom, use your vote to change the situation, not your life!
