Inspired by a scene from the novel Victoria. I will present you with a moral dilemma, and I want you to decide what you would do, why, and describe the moral factors and tactical considerations involved in your judgment.
The government, in the interest of doing “social justice”, puts a bunch of extremely violent felons on buses. They bus these felons to a small town where they outnumber the inhabitants, and force local landowners to put them up for vouchers because “diversity”. All legal, because it’s the government.
Now, you are visiting this small town to see your parents, and go to the little church’s bake sale. After talking to everyone there, you determine that 10 of the attendees are solid but not very bright Christians (average IQ of 92), 30 are churchians, and 5 are SJWs. None of them has read a book since high school, and not one has heard of SJWs, 3rd Worldism, dispensationalism, fluoridated water, colloidal silver, or much of anything else. Everyone is operating almost entirely on instinct, including the resentful SJWs, being all they have to work with. Like the earliest churches in the New Testament, they struggle with deceivers, idiots, and heresies, but they are after all just dumbass normies prone to iatriogenic interventions.
One of the buses full of felons pulls up in front of the church. Doors open. FBI agents have been prowling the small town to arrest anyone who does violence, but they have conspicuously ignored the sudden epidemic of rapes and murders perpetrated by the felons. The locals are confused and frightened like sheep without a shepherd.
So when the active shooters enter the church to kill, rape, and destroy, is it moral to shoot back? Is it good to defend the people at this hypothetical bake sale? Is it not better to retreat to your parents’ home and try to wait it out? (Surely the historical r/k cycle will put all things right.) How much personal risk is permissible, in tactical and moral terms? Let’s say you have foreknowledge of the arrival of the felons, but the other people in your little church don’t believe you. Is it moral to try to convince them to pack heat? That is, essentially, is it moral to use persuasion even though you risk the 5 SJWs running you off (because they instinctively want the congregation to be as helpless as possible)?
Pro tip: This is basically how South Africa works, in the large.
