Violence is a mindset.
You have to be willing to commit violence.
You have to be willing to hurt, possibly maim, it even kill another human being.

I’ve seen a lot of comments about how easy it would have been to stop this person.
Bash him on the head so that he falls off the ladder.
Except it was clear the person recording this was unwilling to employ that much violence.
It’s not about the opportunity, it’s the will.
Are you willing to cave in the skull of a man trying to break into your house with a knife?
If you’re reading this blog, the answer is probably “yes.”
For many people, the answer is “no.”
If you want to survive a violent encounter, you must be prepared to dish out violence.
