Is there anything worth killing for? NOTHING!

Not "cures," not "stopping inconvenience," not "natural resources." Not "avoiding pain," not "averting risk." Not anything. I can give up my own life, but I cannot be a part of taking someone else's.

I sure don't want to start a quarrel, but one thing missing from your excellent list is stopping the killing of others. Not the risk that someone might die, but the actual active taking of lives such as periods of genocide or an attack on a loved one.
