4,632. Every man I meet wants to protect me. I can’t figure out what from. (Man & Protection) Mae West
95,646. To define the mafia as ‘the industry of violence’ is open to misunderstanding. Violence is a means, not an end; a resource, not the final product. The commodity that is really at stake is protection. It may be argued that ultimately protection rests on the ability to use force, but it does not follow that it coincides with it ... These were people who find it in their individual interest to buy mafia protection. While some may be victims of extortion, many others are willing customers. (Gangstas & Mafia & Protection & Violence) Professor Diego Gambetta, Oxford University, The Sicilian Mafia: The Business of Private Protection

And all they got from Paulie was protection from other guys looking to rip them off. And that’s what it’s all about. That’s what the FBI could never understand. That what Paulie and the organization does is offer protection for people who can’t go to the cops. That’s it. That’s all it is. They’re like the police department for wiseguys.

85,955. This girl I know needs some shelter
She don’t believe anyone can help her
She’s doing so much harm, doing so much damage
But you don’t want to get involved
You tell her she can manage
And you can’t change the way she feels
But you could put your arms around her.
I know you want to live yourself
But could you forgive yourself
If you left her just the way
You found her.
I stand in front of you
I’ll take the force of the blow
Protection. Massive Attack, Protection lyrics
