A man is chasing you with a bloody ax, how do you address this problem?
You can
A) Appoint a blue ribbon committee to study the social, political, economic and biological
   factors that have produced such a person, with emphasis on education and the influence
   western technology including the internet has had on values and ideas
Or you can
B) Put a bullet in his brain before he chops your head off.

What would you recommend?
