Glossary entry discussion: Violence
This thread is for articulating the definition of violence for the glossary in the official version of Free Press Bible.
I like the way you put it. It adresses a hierarchy of rights that I think needs to be considered. ( I don't do that as well in my definitions)Here are some other candidates for discussion.
"Use of dangerous force without due regard for the rights of others" (that's a new one shaped by your influence)
"The intentional breaching of rightful boundaries."
Upon reflection, I don't think you and I will have much trouble settling on a definition. Much content in the official release is related to promoting a philosophy of non-violence. I will be satisfied to include only one usage definition.(the one dealing with interpersonal activity)
In my personal collection, in the section titled "convictions", I have the statement
"Violence never serves the cause of justice" .
Right now I am thinking about paraphrasing your statement for the definition's example sentence.
