I’ll let my G-30 do the talking

Advice on self-defense:

The self-defense instructors from Atlanta Budokan showed off what to do if you are grabbed — if you can, fight, kick, and use what they said is your best weapon — your voice.

Your voice is only good at drawing attention and it’s only effective at that if someone is within earshot. A 45 does that too. Oh, and it can actually stop an attack.

Continuing:

But the bigger message — awareness.

That I agree with.

    It’s also hard to yell if some 200 lb asshole has his hands around your throat.

    Also, drawing attention with your voice is only helpful if the person within earshot is armed & willing to intervene. If all they have is a camera or a cell phone they might make a good witness for the Prosecuting Attorney assigned to prosecute your murderer, but that will be of little consolation.

    I recently had occasion to point out what an appalling travesty it is how so many people now speak in terms of metaphor instead plain English referring to facts of reality.

    Almost nobody thinks so, but I say that this is a really important matter. What’s happening — over the long cultural run — is that people hear other people saying flagrantly ridiculous things, never check them for conceptual integrity or actual reference to reality, and simply sublimate these things as reality. This is a matter of epistemology: we’re talking about how what passes for many, if not most, peoples’ “thinking” is conditioned.

    This is how you get to the crashing absurdity of referring to a voice as a “weapon”, and what it all means in a culture like the one that we live in, now, where most people will actually nod their heads and take it seriously. Americans were once the most reality-oriented people on earth. Anyone saying something like that fifty years ago would have been laughed right out of the room.

    Things are very different, now, and none of it is any good.
