    Ha, I think I separate causes as concepts and abstract, and then people as human and maybe seeing a cause as representing something for them ...or something like that. I have a bothersome human focus in my mind. It also works to protect me from taking part in bullshit causes.

    No, I separate the human aspect. I'll admit though... generally, I do consider people human.

As to "a guarantee I would live on in eternity as a hero" I'll assume you mean in the literary sense and not in some Valhalla. With that assumption the question would is: would I trade my life for some sort of legend? Nope. Not a chance. Show me a dead hero and I'll show you somebody who is dead. I’m not saying it wouldn’t be better to be dead as a hero than a knave but what I am saying is that its better to be alive. Somebody offers me a chance to take part in a sucicide mission but I get to go down in the history books I’m saying “pass”. Let the fools and romantics take the up. Again, it’s not that I haven’t and wouldn’t risk my neck – I just want a sporting chance to live to a ripe old age.
    Sometimes what needs to be done will leave no sporting chance to see a ripe old age. Weighed in the balance, is your life worth the objective you're working towards?

    One of my favorite stories as a kid was about the viking at stamford bridge. History has lost his name, but we remember him for what he did; single handedly holding off the entire Saxon army to give his side a chance.

    We all die; how, and for what purpose is usually not a choice we get to make. If you could choose to have it mean something, for it to be a good death, and one that could be remembered by history - wouldn't you?

    There are people I would take a bullet for. But I will probably die for no good reason, same reason I was born, basically.

    The Death Wish - Thanatos

    If we haven't got something to die for, we haven't got something to live for.

    The Islamists have something to die for, so they have something to live for.

    And it is obvious reading these posts that the West has nothing to die for anymore, and so has nothing to live for, and indeed have even stopped having children.

    If we have nothing to die for, we have, ironicly, a death wish.
