Political Philosophy

Doesn’t a “preemptive strike” philosophy, when followed by all parties to its logical conclusion, dictate that we must all attack each other immediately?

  1. Only if the other parties are an immediate threat. If not, nobody attacks.


    • I guess it depends on how one defines “immediate threat”. That phrase gets thrown around far too easily today, I think. But in a reasonable world, you’re totally right.

      I always find myself wondering what life would be like if people behaved like nations. I hear my neighbor is going to buy a gun to defend himself in case of an attack, so I go over and shoot him first? Weird.
