IPFS News Link • WAR: About that War

On the weekend’s shooting–


I abhor violence. Non-retaliatory violence is a desperate act of intolerant men who cannot sort out their differences reasonably and peacefully.  Violence is the answer for those who lack the intellectual merit to win a battle of ideas and can only resort to more animalistic behavior to impress their point.

The greater the violence, the more unfortunate the outcome– major acts of violence result in loss of life, collateral damage, destruction of property, changes in social mood, and more.

Every single day, crazed lunatics claim the lives of innocent people; sometimes it’s a premeditated crime, sometimes it’s a crime of passion, sometimes it’s a complete accident, sometimes it’s an act of terror, and sometimes people are just in the wrong place at the wrong time when a 500 pound bomb is dropped over Afghanistan.

Is that what they told Paul Revere ?

I guess you would have preferred that the founder just talk King George out of being tyrannical? Give me a break!   And of course you would have to get rid of the big monopoly on violence: the United States Government.

You need to realize there are 2 types of violence justified and unjustified.  Justified violence is usually a response to the initiation of violence by someone else. Often the illegitimate actions of a government are the initiation of violence.
