i think it would hurt, but it's not something that i actually contemplate that often so i don't think it's one of my deeper rooted fears. (are you a Sx or So first?)
what really scares/worries me is something larger than myself such as a school of thought, law enforcement agency, corporation, etc., doing something that i find terrible to a person that i care about (or anyone really) and lacking any means to retaliate/fix the problem without screwing myself and others over in the process due to the poor thinking of others (see school of thought), or to a broken system.
edit: that sort of predicament is probably closer to my core. the thought of it gets my blood pressure going because at the point, you either have to bite your tongue and just let other's take advantage of your loved ones, or, you say "to hell with it" and go Rambo on those motha fuckas.
