Dealing With Violence

Source: Freeman’s Perspective
by Paul Rosenberg

“One of the first things to understand about violence is that it never proves anyone right or wrong. People portray it that way, but it’s a ridiculous concept. Having better weapons or faster fists means absolutely nothing about being right or wrong; it’s primitive force, and nothing else. And yet, sometimes primitive force does matter. We certainly have to use it against wild animals: sensible cooperation with them simply isn’t possible. And, sadly, there are people with whom reasonable cooperation isn’t possible.” (01/10/22)
