    I chewed your statements around in my mind. Now I'm spitting this out: We die for life. Beautiful. *applause for wildcat*

    I've been thinking about this thread and I think that while I would not like to die for a cause and value life probably more than anything else I would die for a cause if I had no choice, better to stand for something as fall for anything.

    In my line of work technically I have to be prepared to die for the cause every day. (In reality i'd be pretty unlucky but its possible) And i'm sure a lot of others are in this position at work.
    If the situation arises, I probably have made mistakes and missed things if it gets so far that my life is at stake. And to be honest it would probably be over pretty quickly in that instance, I would react as i am trained to and if i die, I die. I don't suppose there would be much thinking time.

    I think if i had the option, I would rather not die though.. So yeah i wouldn't make a conscious decision to die for the cause, but potentially I am putting myself in that situation!

    The Party

    Whenever you go to a party, the first thing they ask is, what do you do?

    They don't say, how do you do, they ask, what do you do?

    How do you justify your existence, they ask, by what you do?

    I try to tell them I am into being rather than doing. But it makes no difference, if I can't justify my existence by doing, I can't be - if I can't do, I can't be.

    And being unable to justify my existence at the party, I retire lonely to the kitchen once again.

    unlikely. If the cause seemed worthy I would, but 99.99% of causes in the world aren't worth me dying for. If I died for a cause, it would have to be one I believed in very much.

    It depends on:

    1. What cause it is
    2. What good it would bring relative to the sacrifice
    3. What good it would bring relative to other options
    4. Who was involved
    5. How large of a scale it would effect
