The evolutionary reason for self-defence


from Anywhere:

 


"The law [on self-defence in England] as it presently stands effectively ignores human nature. It says that someone who is attacked must exercise truly marvellous self-control. In defending himself, the victim must not lose his temper and carry on attacking the attacker after the attacker has been disabled. This is utterly unrealistic. Someone in a blind rage or panic is manifestly not in control of their actions. There are good evolutionary reasons for that. When someone is responding to an attack, an uncontrolled response is the best way of responding to protect oneself. The evolutionary bottom line is: dead attacker equals safety." read more at https://englandcalling.wordpress.com/2012/04/11/the-right-of-self-defence-in-england-2/
