Crazy and Fearless Men

Shall Not Be Questioned points out that:
If it is rough men who stand ready to do violence on our behalf that let us sleep at night, it’s crazy and fearless men who stand by to rescue on our behalf that allow us to behave recklessly without consequence. God bless them.

And the emphasis should be on the word "Men". Nowadays you do find women in the rescue business, but you still don't, as Robert Heinlein pointed out over 40 years ago, read in the newspaper of women risking their lives to attempt to save strangers. When we train that out of boy-men our society becomes immeasurably weaker. Unless you know where and how to look, you would never notice the dangerous flaws until it's too late and everything crumbles.
