Sorry to give two posts in one evening; but here, I give you something that might yet fit into a story:
Ransom said: 'The justification of nonviolence, is that, to put an end to the endlessness of violence, one side must stop, first; and if the other side will not, we must. The justification of violence is, that the time to practice nonviolence (in the popular sense, at least), is not when the enemy is coming down upon you like a wolf on the fold. The true and philosophical sense of nonviolence, permits something to be done, then, to save oneself and one's near and dear ones, in place of violence, and against which, violence has no counter-attack. The popular sense, of course, does not'.
What do you think? Does it suggest anything?
Any questions? Observations? Suggestions for improvement? Threats of violence? Let me know!
