Violence is justified all the time....unfortunately
Violence is the last and most effective means to get a point across
You really believe that?
I feel violence should always be the last action to take - because it has the most obvious destructive effects. However it should never be disregarded completely. It should always be the last move taking into consideration the situation...
I'm finding it difficult to understand what you're saying but I'll try.
I don't see how violence is a violation of an agreement. Sometimes violence IS an agreement. Let's say for example I lent somebody money. I made it clear that I will use violence if that money was not paid back. It was not paid back. I used violence. That is an example of how violence is in no form a violation of an agreement. Infact lack of violence would be.
Violence is the last and most effective means to get a point across (generally although there are many circumstances where it is not).
If I have completely missed the point I apologise and ask you to explain to me as simply as possible what you're trying to get. Thanks
Well if it's the definition of violence we have to debate for -
Violence is any form of physical attack. If I punch my friend in the arm it is violence - but such little amount of violence. If I have a fight with someone at school it is a much larger and obvious amount of violence.
Violence tends to have negative connotations.
Is smacking your kid violence? If yes - then I will always agree that violence can be justified. If hitting someome to protect your pride and honour is violence again I would say it is justified. We should always look for non-violence, but there are times when violence is justified.
Meat industry violent?
