Throughout history, people have relied on wars and violence in order to resolve issues, whether it be for profit or satisfaction in other ways. As of now, it is culturally acceptable, in certain circumstances to use violence in order to resolve issues for a supposed peaceful endpoint that "justifies the means". My argument is that violence only perpetuates more violence, and in order to mitigate it, we must create new alternatives and change our ideology that has been ingrained through social conditioning.

Con

We didn't win WW2 with appeasement, we won it with guns.

Each war that was created was created without consideration to alternative and better means in order to resolve conflict and ultimately obtain peace in a more ideal and sustainable way.
