I'll take none of the above.

In a famous radio comedy act the penny pinching Jack Benny is accosted by a mugger who demands "Your money or your life." when he doesn't respond the mugger gets impatient at which point Mr. Benny tells him that he's thinking it over.

Weerd Beard has written an excellent post pointing out that we the non-agressors have very little assurance that someone willing to kill you for your money will not go ahead and kill you after he has it. The people who say that things aren't worth killing or being killed over fail to realize that the armed robber has already determined that your money is worth killing over, do you really want to trust your life(or your loved ones) to the expectation that this is all that is worth killing over to this individual?
