• No fucking shit it's the answer.

    Let's just give an example. Let's say a bully is trash talking you about how you're a waste of oxygen then shows violent expressions. What would you do? If you said beat that nigga up like there was no tomorrow then congrats you win a cookie. But seriously, you have to teach that said bully how to shut the fuck up. This is how life is. If You piss the wrong person off then you're gonna get knocked the fuck out. That's how this world works. And if you disagree then stop living in your own world.

  • ...A time for war and a time for peace.

    "There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven—

    A time to give birth and a time to die;
    A time to plant and a time to uproot what is planted.

    A time to kill and a time to heal;
    A time to tear down and a time to build up.

    A time to weep and a time to laugh;
    A time to mourn and a time to dance.

    A time to throw stones and a time to gather stones;
    A time to embrace and a time to shun embracing.

    A time to search and a time to give up as lost;
    A time to keep and a time to throw away.

    A time to tear apart and a time to sew together;
    A time to be silent and a time to speak.

    A time to love and a time to hate;
    A time for war and a time for peace." -New American Standard Bible

  • YES

    It should always be a last resort, but for those that would argue it's never the answer, I would like them to study the history of Mao, Stalin, and Hitler.

    Some people are just plain evil, and the only thing that they understand is violence. This doesn't mean that we should go to violence first, but violence has to be an option at some point.

  • Of course it is

    Sometimes the only way to fix an issue is with violence. Some people simply do not listen to anything other than physical actions. This includes wars (the holocaust would never have been ended without violence) and some criminals who are very violent themselves and must be restrained. Sometimes there is no other choice.

  • Yes, sometimes.

    When you are involved in a violent situation there is sometimes no way to resolve it except by violent means. This is why we have self defense as a legal justification for a violent act. It's an interesting question as to whether violence is the answer for dealing with a situation in which other means have been used to reach an agreement and have failed. For instance, North Korea seems to be upping their aggressive stance towards the US and South Korea and are not disposed to engage in discussions that might alleviate our differences. It would probably be quite easy for the US to use violence, but would it be justified? We cannot really afford to wait and see if they will make good on their threats, but would it be appropriate to just take them out of the conversation? In WWII, the US ended the war by dropping atomic bombs on Japan. The justification given was that the war was going to drag on forever, and by destroying those cities many lives were saved by ending the war quickly. I'm not sure violence was the answer in that case because we arbitrarily decided that at lot of Japanese people would die in order to save a lot of our citizens. But isn't that also a form of self defense?

  • Sometimes but not always

    Many people believe violence is never the solution. In some cases, I agree. There are situations that should never involve violence. In other cases, violence is necessary. For instance, America would not be America without the revolution. We would not be taken seriously or respected without a war. We protested and asked fairly for our rights and we still weren’t treated fairly. War was the best option. In smaller, everyday situations, violence is a path less taken but still used. Bullies push and shove smaller kids endlessly until someone fights back. I live by the motto ‘never take the first swing but always have the last. Especially in today’s world, instigating or starting physical violence is a big no-no! Once the person takes the first swing, metaphorically or literally, then its fight on. No one should be able to make you seem less than any other person. We aren’t animals that need to establish dominance. Yes, we do need some dominance like a leader to guide us and pursue laws but everyone's life has the same worth. Even the government shouldn’t control us, as it even says so in the constitution. They should be able to enforce laws such as convicting someone of murder but taking away guns shouldn’t be pushed for the simple fact that it’s one of our rights. Dominance and leadership in some ways ties into violence because of the way it is handled and enforced. As I write this, the song “Coward off the County” by Kenny Rogers comes on. He says in the beginning that the father tells his son he doesn’t have to fight to be a man. As the song goes on, the son is considered the coward of the county because he decided to turn away from violence. Further on, it mentions that the sons girlfriend is raped by three men. He can no longer contain himself and grabs a gun to confront them. When he gets there, he is made fun of and decides to leave, but, as he is leaving, one of the men makes a comment. The song insinuates that the son killed every one of the boys involved in the rape. He then prays to his dead father to forgive him because “Sometimes you’ve gotta fight to be a man” as he says. I 100% agree with this well written song and the moral of the story, avoid trouble when you can, but sometimes you gotta fight to be a man.

  • Violence is just a tool

    Violence can be used for evil or good. If you use it to take advantage of someone or for malicious intent it is evil. If some one is trying to hurt, rape ,or kill you and they cannot be reasoned with then it is the only solution left to stop them. Stopping evil is good and violence will stop evil if it is applied properly.

  • Stop being a wimp

    Grow a set, be real men and just fight things out. To many pathetic wimps in this world we live in. I mean its not that complicated just fight till someone wins and you mite even be freinds after. I think chicks are more agressive than most men cause those cat fights are ruthless

  • Violence May Be Necessary

    There are people in this world who will allow anyone to do anything to them in the name of "keeping the peace." If you allow someone to do something to you without retaliation, then that someone knows that they can repeat that something against you again because you won't do anything to them. This is just the natural order of things, it is not right or wrong. It is utilitarian. Teach the aggressor that they can't be aggressive against you without a fight. Even if you lose the fight, the aggressor will still think twice about trying to harm you.

  • Self defence IS NOT VIOLENCE

    Self defense is not violent. Violence is born from hate which is born from ignorance. One form of non violent self defwnse is agreeing to dissagree- and finding terms to live peacefully. When it comes to hitler and attackers- The answer is simple- It is not violence if it ends suffering-it is not violence if youare fighting to LIVE rather than gunning for something a smooth talker could attain in a paragraph.

  • Nonviolence is Key

    Violence should never be the answer. When someone is aggressive and violent towards you, the proper response is nonviolence. This is the only way to make sure you have the legal and moral upper hand. It also prevents any situations that may be escalated or that may turn into a vicious cycle of retaliation.

  • Uhhh, Boston Massacre?

    Protesting is O.K , it's peaceful as we know. But escalation and then the riots, and then the shoots fired unto the crowd which then is called "police brutality". Or did you remember the Boston Massacre in which the protesters reacted FIRST by throwing snowballs and sticks and what not to injure the British soldiers. Of course for an American Loyalist they were terrible, especially for the "massacre". But they protected their beings since a nonviolent stay still didn't work. Violence just causes more.

  • Violence is not the answer

    Everyone gets hurt with violence, not just physically but mentally. Being violent hurts you as a person, it just crushes your respect for yourself slowly. Yes, you might feel satisfied in the short term, but in the long term you will just regret ever having done anything violent. If you feel the need to settle a argument using your fists, then it just shows weakness and lack of control.

  • Violence is not the answer

    Violence is not the answer because fighting can get you in trouble ,it can start up more bigger thing also the people who say yes doesn't want peace in our would so, stop saying yes and start saying no! Because our world needs peace more than violence. So who's with me!!

  • It is never the answer!!!

    I agree with the statement that violence is never the answer. I think this because firstly, people can easily get hurt. People getting hurt isn’t good news because it may cause difficulties for the victim for example, breaking ones’ limbs, producing scars or cuts on ones’ body etc. Secondly, I think that one of the causes of the conflict or fight may be something so little no one would know what the person was fussing around about. Thirdly, I think that violence is the product of anger and impulse. How you act represents yourself and if you are a nice to others’, people will think of you as a nice and loyal friend. On the other hand if you don’t think before you act, you wouldn’t end up with much friends, nor would people have a good impression on you. Nonetheless, I think that violence is not the appropriate solution to problems.

  • Violence can kill

    One punch can kill and you know it! Every punch we release has some dangerous consequences and we don't know what it is but we know that it is very bad. Violence is sometimes adapted from shows and movies and that's why we have to put more security in classification stuff

  • Violence is never an answer

    Fighting fire with fire only makes the problem worse and or worst, but if you are calm before you approach a problem that might involve violence, you'll act as a fire extinguisher and thus making the problem go lesser rather than increasing the heat. Violence is a one-sided method for one-sided minded people that all can do is to involve physical pain to solve their problem.
