Human are not natural killers of other humans. However, sufficiently docile humans may be taught to kill, to support killing, or to kill on command by teaching them to dissociate themselves from responsibility for the act. When people are constantly taught that other humans are natural born killers who want to kill them and take their possessions, they will do almost anything to protect themselves and their families.
While humans have a killer instinct, they are not natural born killers. If a person is concerned about self-protection, the person must cultivate the killer instinct so that it is keen, but controlled. Then it may lie dormant until needed; when it may be unleashed. If the killer instinct is not cultivated, when it is needed it will not be available or there may be too much delay in its use. Mr. Durbin trains his students to suppress the killer instinct and to try to eliminate it, but he does not train them to use it. His premise is that when the killer instinct is required, it will miraculously be there for use. As explained above, humans are natural born killers of other animals, but they have an innate inhibition against killing other humans under any circumstance. To be able to kill another human, you have to have previously thought about doing it, trained in how to do it, and be prepared for the act and its aftermath.
