Is Self-Defense A Right?

In the light of many things that have happened in the past couple of years, I ask this question. Is self-defense a right? Since we are all either martial artists, warriors, or have an interest in the same, let's answer and discuss this critical question. Consider this an open thread.

Let me add to the question:

  1. Since the beginning of understanding, and the basis for communication is the definition of terms, what is self-defense?
  2. What is a right?
Please feel free to opine, and do your best to give reasons for your opinions. All non-SPAM comments will be approved. I will be responding at the end of every day, Eastern time.

Hero Teens Finds Abducted Girl

You may have heard this story of an abducted child being rescued by two teens. It's still worth watching this video interview of one of them.



Takeaways:

  1. These kids weren't afraid to get involved - many, if not most adults do not.
  2. They listened to their intuition. Noticing a suspicious vehicle, and looking for the girl.
  3. These seem like great kids, regardless of the rescue; at the beginning of the video, Temar mentions that they were helping an old lady move a couch. He also mentions that a whole bunch of their friends were looking.Outstanding!
As we often see, heroism is ordinary people stepping up for others when the circumstances present themselves. To me, that's extraordinary. God bless these young heroes.
