    The Defender's Creed
    By: John Farnam

    I accept and understand that human predators exist. Criminal or terrorist, they take advantage of our civilized society to prey upon the weak. They represent evil and must be confronted and defeated.

    I believe that self-defense is a moral imperative, and that illegitimate force and illegal violence must be met with righteous indignation and superior violence.

    I will not rely on others for the security of myself, my family and my community.

    I proudly proclaim that I run with a like-minded pack. I do not amble through life with the mind-numbed herd.

    I will train with my chosen weapons, maintain them and carry them in a condition of readiness at all times.

    I will be mentally prepared and physically equipped to effectively respond to an attack or emergency.

    I will constantly test myself against realistic standards to discover my strengths and weaknesses. I will turn weakness into strength.

    I will seek to learn new skills and techniques, and then teach what I have learned to other members of the pack.

    Be it with firearm or blade, empty hand or blunt object, I will hit my enemies hard, fast and true.

    I will live a quiet and unobtrusive life, but I will develop and retain the capacity for swift and decisive violence.

    I recognize that I am the modern equivalent of the traditional Minuteman, and that I may be called to service at any time against heavily armed enemies. I will respond effectively.

    I accept that I am a pariah among some of my countrymen, and a quaint anachronism to others. I will not hold their ignorance against them.

    I will win, or die trying.

    I swear this creed before God, my family and my fellow citizens.
