First, we have Michael Reid, who when his young charges called for help (they were being attacked in the night by one of the most deadly of all land-dwelling predators), ran to the tent unarmed and put himself in harm's way without a second thought:
He later, despite serious injuries, grabbed a rifle and killed the animal.
And then there's 16 year old Patrick Flinders, who despite having no room to bring his rifle around, used it as a club and then punched the animal in a vain attempt to save his friend:
Far, far less worthy men will sneer at the group's background, ethos and reason for being there, men who truly must hold their manhoods cheap*.
And then we have those who, in return for what they see an an 'injustice', decide to riot, loot, burn shops in their own neighbourhood and generally act like the savage, unthinking animals the polar bear at least had no option than to be:
Well, while we have people like Michael Reid and Patrick Flinders, we have some hope, at least...
