The Old Gunslinger Paradox

Cowboys and Aliens

There is a strategy by young psychopaths in relationship with their legacy.  As the old gunslinger gets older the odds that he will eventually get taken out increase.  Young bloods adopt a strategy betting that they might be the one to take him out and inherit his fame.  This creates an environment where as the old gunslinger is getting older he is bombarded with conflict as he simply tries to stay alive in the face of unreasoning opposition.  The young bloods aren’t interested in whether they are fighting for something they are just trying to solidify their reputation and legacy.  So every gun toting pecker wood takes a pot shot at the old gunslinger.
