Dine and Dash Pacifism

via an email from Phin, this breathtakingly perfect analogy from Cake Eater Chronicles:

in the restaurant of life, pacifists dine and dash. They're thieves. They eat the good food, they drink the good wine, they enjoy the ambience of the restaurant, but when the tab comes to the table, they get up and run because they won't pay the bill.

Make sure you read it all.

Those not willing to defend freedom are on a freedom welfare program. They remain free merely out of the goodness of those willing to die for freedom.

I have never been able to understand the conflicting nature of a pacifist who enjoys a life of freedom but would accept slavedom instead of fighting for freedom. What I find detestable are those who demand their freedoms at others' expense. Those people are the moral equivalent of a leach.

Worse than a leach.
