The Defender's Creed
By John Farnam
I accept and understand that human predators exist. Criminal or terrorist, they take advantage of our
civilized society to prey upon the weak. They represent evil and must be confronted and defeated.
I believe that self-defense is a moral imperative, and that illegitimate force and illegal violence must be
met with righteous indignation and superior violence.
I will not rely on others for the security of myself, my family and my community.
I proudly proclaim that I run with a like-minded pack. I do not amble through life with the mind-numbed
I will train with my chosen weapons, maintain them and carry them in a condition of readiness at all
I will be mentally prepared and physically equipped to effectively respond to an attack or emergency.
I will constantly test myself against realistic standards to discover my strengths and weaknesses. I will
turn weakness into strength.
I will seek to learn new skills and techniques, and then teach what I have learned to other members of
Be it with firearm or blade, empty hand or blunt object, I will hit my enemies hard, fast and true.
I will live a quiet and unobtrusive life, but I will develop and retain the capacity for swift and decisive
I recognize that I am the modern
equivalent of the traditional
Minuteman, and that I may be
called to service at any time

will respond effectively.

among some of my countrymen,
and a quaint anachronism to others.
I will not hold their ignorance
I will win, or die trying.
I swear this creed before God, my
family and my fellow citizens.
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
