Re: Life Question - Harming Another Human Being

I said this before, but I think we are giving ourselves a LOT of credit for actually being able to defend ourselves from attack, let alone protect our attackers.

Unless by using subdue in "subdue a madman with a gun without inflicting overkill" you mean tense up, maybe pee yourself, and give the man your wallet and hope he doesn't get nervous and squeeze the trigger. If that's the case, I think many of us are all about subduing madmen...
