: It's funny Gee you support the ownership of weapons which are designed to kill and presumably you think of self-defence as wounding or killing people who choose to attack you but given the similar circumstances of workers trying to defend themselves against employers and companies by "wounding" or "killing" them it's out of the question.

It seems like apples and oranges to me Lark - when I talk about self defence I'm not talking about someone cutting you up, mouthing off or trying to pinch your bike - I'm talking about someone coming at you to do serious damage, or invading your house forcing you into a fight/flight decision.

I'm all for working poeple contesting their conditions, as long as it doesnt include blocking the entrance to other willing workers - ie monopolising labor.
