Simple Definitions with Wide Implications

1.  A terrorist is someone who _____ for a cause.

2.  A martyr is someone who _______for a cause.

Answer: 1. kills.   2.  is killed.

Obviously, we use the italicized words in extreme cases–thus excluding most deaths on earth, but I think the idea here is worthy of pause.
