The most dangerous person in the world is a good man pushed to the point of having nothing to lose.

What do you think of this statement and do you agree with it? (Why/Why Not)

As I was pondering this question, I recalled listening to a UN refugee official talking about the Africans trying to get to Europe in flimsy overloaded boats. He said "These people think of themselves as already dead. If they return home they will be killed. If they stay put they will be killed. Death is inevitable. They truly have nothing to lose so if they see even the slightest glimmer of hope for them and their family they will risk it." Thousands have died in the attempt but some made it.

While self-righteousness is dangerous, I'd say a bad man with nothing to lose is likely worse.

I've thought about this since it was originally posted, and have come to this conclusion:


Anyone, who is at that point, and is pushed to having to do Something, is dangerous.
