  • Violence helped solve some of my problems.

    When I was being bullied by a classmate in high school, I did what they wanted me to do, that was to go to the principal about it. However, when they did nothing about it and the kid kept on hurting me, I ended up snapping and punched the bully in the face to the point where he started bleeding and begging me to stop what I was doing to him. Ever since the fight, the kid has not bullied me or others since then, in fact, he's now so scared of doing it ever again. So that helped solve my problems.

  • Violence is awesome

    Violence can solve a problem, it only brushes a problem under the rug, in a hope that the problem will be forgotten, except it doesnn. The victor of violence will do their best for reassure that any problem exists. Their is no excuse for violence it is simply a way of forcing ones will on another. Violence doesn't create a solution, it forces the weaker of the parties involved to forget the problem. Violence is inexcusable.

  • Violence is a tool

    Hitler used violence to set up the third Reich. The allied forces used it to defeat Hitler. Were the allied forces wrong because "Violence is bad". The potential of violence gets you to pay taxes, and not murder people when they annoy you. Violence isn't good or bad, it is dangerous.

  • History has thought us that violence does solve problems.

    In the history of the west, not speaking about any other civilizations, there have always two approaches: The first is the Athenian way, which uses reason, diplomacy, logic and ethics. This frequently fails because it tends to favor compromise, weakness and fear. The second is the Spartan approach: When everything fails, send 300 men into a gym, train them till they puke, and go out and resolve the problem with violence, and if needed, a little genocide. If American TV and Movies have thought us one thing, it's that violence is everywhere. Since we cannot understand something, then we must fight it. Enough with the sunday morning diplomacy, we need action, violence and drive by shootings.

    TLDR: What I just wrote makes no sense.

  • Text book example of "Is-Ought problem"

    This is not actually about an argumentation about 'Problems' or 'Violence' but about of the "Is-Ought problem". "Is" is a descriptive statement of reality. "Ought, should, could..." are normative statements. When using the latter shows the individual can't deal with the current reality. Hence the issue is not about the brute facts of reality but instead, the perception and almost arbitrary prescriptive judgment of an individual.

    Rephrasing the question as "CAN violence be used to solve a problem?":

    -Problem: a matter or situation regarded as unwelcome or harmful and needing to be dealt with and overcome.
    -Violence: behavior involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill someone or something.

    I CAN (is possible to) use physical violence to overcome a situation.

    Rephrasing the question as "[Is is moral/ethical/righteous... To use] violence to solve a problem?"... That posses a very different question - but will further clarify what type of answer is expected and appropriate.

    One word of caution... Using the E-Prime communication when exchanging on the subject can help share a common reality instead of overusing the 'to be' verb which separates both protagonist from one another.

    With this, have fun!

  • Violence is often Inevitable and unjustifiable

    No need to say more
    "My mother said violence never solves anything." "So?" The teacher looked at her bleakly."I'm sure the fathers of Hiroshima would have a few words to say...You" The teacher calls the other student, "they probably would not say anything, Hiroshima was destroyed"
    “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”
    ― Robert A. Heinlein

  • Death to Tyrants

    It's interesting that the arguments here against violence come across as philosophical notions while the pro arguments use practical examples to show that sometimes violence works. "Love your enemies" is a quaint notion that we could not apply to Hitler or ISIL. They need to be murdered as violently as possible--simple.

  • Violence never solves problems

    Violence never solves a problem, it only brushes a problem under the rug, in a hope that the problem will be forgotten. The victor of violence will do their best for reassure that any problem exists. Their is no excuse for violence it is simply a way of forcing ones will on another. Violence doesn't create a solution, it forces the weaker of the parties involved to forget the problem. Violence is inexcusable.

  • Violence makes things worse than they already might be

    Say someone is breaking into your house. For us humans, Our 1st instincts might be to run, Call 911, Or just grab a weapon and fix the issue yourself. Using a weapon is okay to some families, Only used for self-protection. The police say that we should never take action without a professional person there to watch you. You may not think that you are ever going to use a gun, And when you do, You don't know how to operate it. Never use violence to solve a problem, It'll just make things worse.

  • Just don't do it

    Violence is asking for a simple situation to escalate quickly it also ends with someone getting hurt. It may have been used to solve problems but is very immature and the human race needs to stop fighting using violence but by using words. We need to change. If we do we will have a better future.

  • Violence silences one or more sides of an issue in favour of the side which imposes it most effectively.

    Violence is a quick solution which doesn't change minds, Meaning it doesn't truly solve problems.

    Aside from its practical inefficiency at problem-solving, It also has the potential to lead to further violence or at the very least limit goodwill between parties. This leads to things like empires falling, Families breaking apart, Or friendships dying.

    As an alternative to violence, Effectively and rationally communicate ideas until a compromise can be found. This is the diplomatic and democratic solution.

  • Don't Do It

    World Events such as World War 1 and World War 2 had a lot of violence in it. And for what? At the end of the war no one wins, And instead everyone's economy and the world suffers from the after effects of war. For example, Terrorism by blowing their selves up and just to kill other people does not help, Even on in the name of someone's religion. Violence is a mean that we should never use as nothing can come good out of it.

  • Maybe it is. But here is an historical argument against it

    Well there was multiple factors that led to the second world war happened, And one of them was that Germans bore a grudge against the winners of first world war. (And who wouldn't? )
    Or in other words, The violence of ww1 and how it ended led to the ww2 which caused even more violence.

    Of course you could use violence to solve a problem, But the only way I see it wouldn't result in a backlash would be to annihilate our opponents, Commit genocide, Etc. Erase it from history and give a good motive as to why we would kill even the spawn of our enemies.
    That would be only way not to cause fear in our allies (as they would be "totally" different from our enemies) and have nobody with a grudge.

    At this point you should have noticed that it would be impractical to use violence in an effective way. And the human losses would be too huge.

    Moreover, Even as a short term solution, It would make it more difficult to put in practice a long term solution.

  • Violence isn't the answer to anything and everything

    Violence is not the answer to every god damn thing or problem cause all it leads to is blood, war, death and even a bad influence on kids if a parent teaches them about it or shows it around their kids which is not a good idea what so ever.

  • Not in the slightest bit.

    Violence is a tool used to force someone to do what you will them to do out of fear. However inevitable it may be, think about all the wars that would never be solved with violence, as in the Cold War, which was a political struggle between superpowers America and the Former Soviet Union, which was settled with a treaty.

  • Violence doesn't solve problems!

    "Through violence you may murder the liar, but you cannot murder the lie, nor establish the truth. ... In fact, violence merely increases hate. Returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars. Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that." -Martin Luther King JR.

    Martin Luther supported peaceful protests. He wanted equal rights. Therefor, his wish was granted! No Violence, No Issues!
