SOMEWHERE IN EUROPE – There are a lot of libertarian lessons to be learned from videos depicting raw violence. This video has many of them, with a bold, fresh slice of humanity at the end.
WorldStarHipHop is one of my favorite sites. Today they bring us a lesson in calmness and strength in the following viral video. Some idiot thug swinging a baseball is acting like he’s carrying a machete or a machine gun. When he swings the bat at a security guard, well… that’s when he realized that a blunt tool is only as good as its owner.
After a quick one-two punch, the security guard checks to make sure that the thug is OK before restraining him while police arrive.
We salute the big muscley-armed black dude for showing enormous restraint in this one. You don’t always have to destroy everyone who slights you. Maybe you can, but an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind.
Mercy from the strong. Deep.
note: We looked everywhere to verify the veracity of the video’s bona fides, but were unable to do so. Some say it’s fake, some say it isn’t. But one thing’s for sure. Someone isn’t going to read this article and will comment on Facebook that it’s fake, and they’ll have done less research than we did.
