I think Cooper's wisdom is ageless. The "four rules" being the greatest and the "four conditions" being the second greatest. Call me old fashioned but I think highly of both of these mental approaches. Anyway, I don't know if you agree with my opinion of the Colonel, but I believe/assume, (you are a respected expert), you have read the "four conditions" and from Condition Yellow we know that: "You don't have to be armed in this state, but if you are armed you should be in Condition Yellow." Further it is stressful to remain in Condition Yellow and even though: "You can remain in Yellow for long periods, as long as you are able to 'Watch your six'" it cannot be healthy to be "geeked-up" even on a lower level for every minute of every waking hour. I am aware that you advocate "constant-carry" but I think it is unhealthy. Prayer, rest, meditation, fun, family, i.e. the good things in life are diminished/impossible in Condition Yellow. It is a commitment level.
