How You Can Tear Up a Lion... If you come across a lion, say a mountain lion, the most important thing is not to run, as this will make you seem like prey and could trigger a predatory response from the lion. Face the animal, so that it knows you have seen it. It would also know that you are ready to fight. If you have to retreat, back away slowly, and if the lion comes toward you, raise your arms or open your coat, if you are wearing one, to make yourself appear larger - this will usually deter a mountain lion. If you are attacked, it is possible to convince the animal to look for an easier victim by fighting back as best you can, going for sensitive areas, like poking it in the eyes and punching it in the nose. This can convince the animal that you are not an easy target. Even the lion does not want to risk injury, as this could leave it unable to hunt. The Holy Bible has the story of Samson, and of how he tore up a young lion with his bare hands when the lion stood in his way as he went to see a beautiful philistine girl he really liked and wanted to marry. The Lion came roaring, expecting Samson to turn around and run so that it would easily claw him down from behind. The question is, why would anyone want to even go by the way of such potential danger, let alone actually taking on a lion? The reason? There must be a compelling desire to get something on the other side. For Samson, it was because of the lovely girl he wanted for a wife. In politics, it must be an incredible desire to pursue a cause and achieve an objective, as Dr. Martin Luther King Jnr and Nelson Mandela did for their peoples. Unfortunately, it may also be for personal gain as we sometimes see in some cases of desperate politics. Therefore, in politics the electorate will do well to see what the politician is really fighting for. Now bear in mind that Dr. Martin Luther King Jnr and Nelson Mandela actually tore up their lions. The lions were killed and Barack Obama a man of African heritage became President of the United States. South Africa became a rainbow society, in victory over apartheid. To tear up a lion, you must face it because your fighting tools are on the front side of the body, not the backside. It is inefficient, futile and even hopeless to fight with your back turned in flight. When soldiers in battle retreat, they are still facing the enemy. In battle, it is more costly and can be even cataclysmic to turn your back to the enemy. It is less costly to face the lion if you want to tear it up. Our hidden economics for you.
