Definition:
Sheeple (a portmanteau of "sheep" and "people") is a term that highlights the herd behavior of people by likening them to sheep, a herd animal. The term is used to describe those who voluntarily acquiesce to a suggestion without critical analysis or research.
I thought it was a self definition of Christians?

Most Christians are very morally critical...

Again, research wasp spray. It is illegal to use it in such a manner - you could be charged for that. Not stating as a fact, but it could happen. Second, there is no research showing its effectiveness on humans. Some who have had incidental contact with their eyes have remarked on how surprised they were on how little effect it had on them.

A set of stainless bars that can be locked over the companionway, spreader floodlights and a siren, along with locking your dinghy properly, are probably going to solve most of your issues. A heavy-duty, police-sized pepper spray (possibly repainted to look like a fire extinguisher and mounted on a bulkhead just like one...) and possibly a long, sharp object, as previously mentioned, should really work adequately for most people, and will get you through most anything you would realistically expect to see.

I will start a 2-year cruise in 3 years, with my wife and 2 pre-teen daughters. This is something I give some significant thought to. Is a firearm worth it? Not sure it is, even though I am well-trained in their use and have the proper mindset to use them.

Using wasp spray is like the idea of just racking a shotgun to scare off an intruder. It sounds like a good idea, until you actually analyze the effectiveness. First, you are already using a less-than-optimal weapon. Second, you let him know where you were. And third, you told him that you have one less round than you could carry. If he doesn't run screaming from your residence like a little girl in a horror house, as many imagine, you still have a real problem to deal with.

If I may, locking yourself in the cabin, is about the worse thing you can do. A little gasoline, obtained from your outboard and voila instant BBQ. But in my case I would rather be judged than mourned..

Yes. of other people .

But nonetheless the book of babble does seem very big on defining it's followers as sheep who need a shepherd. Others prefer to be own shepherd.

When I manage to get the biased bs cleaned from my life is perception
glasses I will attempt to properly retort. Some follow civil and moral principles,
others follow the babbling of their own, my mind is mightier than anything,
delusions.

I guess when one is a long time many posts contributor the "be nice" rule
doesn't apply ?

And what did the OP ask ?
