You Never Know What May Happen Today, or Tomorrow

On another September 11, eleven years ago, Muslim terrorists used civilian aircraft full of innocent people to attack three iconic buildings within the USA. The attack killed over 3,000 people, shut down US civilian air travel for a week, cost over $1 trillion in damages, and spawned multiple wars and military actions in reprisal.

You never know what may happen today, or tomorrow. It could be another Islamic terror attack -- but in another form, such as a radioactive dirty bomb to deny use of entire cities, or an EMP attack that could shut down the electrical power grid for most of entire continent for an extended period of time.

Here is something to think about:
here’s a passage from Lee Harris’s Civilization And Its Enemies.
Forgetfulness occurs when those who have been long inured to civilized order can no longer remember a time in which they had to wonder whether their crops would grow to maturity without being stolen or their children sold into slavery by a victorious foe.

They forget that in time of danger, in the face of the Enemy, they must trust and confide in each other, or perish.
They forget, in short, that there has ever been a category of human experience called the Enemy. And that, before 9/11, was what had happened to us. The very concept of the Enemy had been banished from our moral and political vocabulary. An enemy was just a friend we hadn’t done enough for — yet. Or perhaps there had been a misunderstanding, or an oversight on our part — something that we could correct. And this means that that our first task is that we must try to grasp what the concept of the Enemy really means.
The Enemy is someone who is willing to die in order to kill you. And while it is true that the Enemy always hates us for a reason — it is his reason, and not ours._Instapundit

Historically, we are living through exceptionally peaceful and prosperous times. There is no particular reason why that should continue to be the case, particularly when entire citizenries are being dumbed down into veritable Idiocracies.

Hope for the best, plan for the worst. If you are currently raising one or more children, or intend to do so, consider making them dangerous. And remember: It is never to late to have a dangerous childhood.
