"I'm sure the city fathers of Carthage would be glad to know that.""  I was not making fun of you personally; I was heaping scorn on an inexcusably silly idea  a practice I shall always follow. Anyone who clings to the historically untrue and thoroughly immoral doctrine that violence never settles anything I would advise to conjure up the ghosts of Napoleon Bonaparte and the Duke of Wellington and let them debate it. The ghost of Hitler could referee and the jury might well be the Dodo, the Great Auk, and the Passenger Pigeon. Violence, naked force, has settled more issues in history than has any other factor, and the contrary opinion is wishful thinking at its worst. Breeds that forget this basic truth have always paid for it with their lives and their freedoms."

I was too slow, but I have the whole thing.

My mother used violence on me when I was a young kid so I stopped stealing her cigarettes. It worked. A switch behind your knees hurt big time. I still don’t smoke.

it has long been noted that the entire establishment of peace that we have, is predicated upon force and violence.

if you break the law, you will be punished, and that punishment is effected by force. try refusing to go to jail and see what happens.

that's what keeps the peace.

I have come to believe that folks who say violence solves nothing have never used violence to solve their problems.

Say what you will about violence, history backs its use as an effective conflict resolution tool.

A few years go, I was on a long drive and channel surfing AM radio talk shows, when I landed upon the Dr. Laura Show. She was discussing violence with a caller and to my surprise, she used that very example, saying (I'm paraphrasing here), "Yes sometimes violence is the answer. How else would the Nazis and Japanese have been stopped in the Second World War?"

IIRC, she has a son who is a Marine and she wasn't afraid to support her position, essentially saying it can often be justified if applied as a righteous response.

Violence, or the threat of violence, is essential to a working society. After all, laws are backed by the promise of state sponsored violence against those that break the law.

I wish we had a society entirely made up of kind hearted and logically minded people with the best interests of all society at heart. I mean, if we did then there would still be disagreements about the best way to proceed, but maybe the disagreements could be worked out rationally.

But we don't because we live in a fallen creation.

The idea behind civilization is that violence isn't required to solve issues.

The problem with civilization is it doesn't take into account for humanity.

Violence or the threat of violence to push a political agenda is the very definition of terrorism.MOST all laws have a political reason,as in why COPS carry guns.

I suppose it only matters who the violence is directed or the political climate to be justified------history tells us that,so be careful!
