you have book experience and very little life experience. What would you do if two men were trying to break into your home at 3 in the morning and you have a child sleeping in a bedroom on the other side of the house? My first thought was not to psychoanalyze them, my first thought was to stop the threat. All I had to do was look at my daughter and come to terms with the idea if anyone were to hurt her, I'd kill them. I assume you have no children, and you've never experienced a home invasion.
In a home invasion scenario, you are correct, it is me against anyone breaking into my home with my child in the house. Breaking into your house at 3 in the morning, they aren't there to read you a bedtime story and tuck you in...realize how ballsy it is for people to think they can threaten your family and the excuse is they are depraved because they are deprived? All that book knowledge flies out the window at the moment you realize the threat is real.
