Yeah, me by myself is pretty meaningless. I know. Doesn't mean that I shouldn't do what I can.
Agree. Being afraid or disgusted is no
excuse for abandoning one's principles. At least not from my perspective. (Other people's mileage may vary. No blame.)
However, if I'm ever going to be put up against a wall, I insist on having the satisfaction of knowing it was something I myself
did that put me there.
I have no problem with dying for something. But I would find it personally offensive to be slaughtered. And one way to avoid that is by not allowing yourself to be viewed as sheep.
