Six people recently fought a well-armed terrorist, and with plenty of guts and a little luck, they won. Then, on the radio, I heard nonsense from a Yale psychology professor about how they altruistically risked their lives to save strangers.
Where is the altruism? Altruism is when someone who is not in danger does something very risky for the sake of others. Those six were in danger–if they hadn’t fought, they certainly would have been killed or maimed. They did what proper people do and sheeple don’t. The rest of the passengers simply got a free ride on the fighting spirit of those five.
What other options did these six have? Hope the terrorist would either change his mind and not shoot anybody or be so kind as to do only clean kills–point-blank shots to the back of everyone’s heads?
