To me a martyr is omeone willing to die for something. A fanatic is
willing to die, or to kill, that's different. Perhaps I'm wrong, perhaps
I'm not, but that's how I see it.

But martyrdom isn't about improving *your* life, it's about improving
other's lives, and improving the world a little more.
