what does the pit think accomplishes more, peace or violence?


i was having an argument with my friend about black metalists burning churches. he claims it is the only way to take down catholisism, and become free. I told him that i thought peaceful protest and educating the general public would be a much better way to accomplish something like that. I mean, what if africans fought for their freedom by burning down white peoples houses, and killing priests? That would only be used against them as propaganda, and further besmirch their character.

sorry if this is a bit of a rant

Violence, you can never really get rid of it anyway it is an innate human behavior.

when it comes to huge organizations like christianity, violence is an extremley temprorary solution and will not at all solve a problem, as fun and metal as it might be. The only way to actually tear down christianity is through peaceful methods similar to what ghandi did.

I think violence is necesarry in very, very, very, very, very few places anymore, and I believe peace is a far better tactic and lifestyle than anything violence has to offer.

Violence shows weakness, not power.

In the long run I think yes peace is better if you are willing to wait for change. Also peaceful revolutions last longer.. If you want immediate change throw a bloody coup...however that may not last more than 3 weeks.

not even a contest. violence is for the people who can't take the time to think out a peaceful resolution

Or just letting people believe what they want to believe might make them feel more free...

i hate violence, all forms, yet i know it will never end but still get prepared for the

"lolz violence is the coolest" responses

and also, just because violence occurs naturally does not mean we have to go with it or accept it
#12
Anyways, I don't think I can say one is a better solution than the other in every single situation ever to happen in the history of humanity.
#13
I would say Peace. I have pretty open minded liberal views but honestly I believe that violence doesn't solve anything. If people would learn that the world would be a better place IMO.

Peace, because you can't bring peace through violence.

IT also depends on the enemy, the nazis could not have been taken down by peaceful resistance, and people did try. But it does work on many other enemies.

Fine by me. I know I'm weak, and won't do much that makes a difference.

But at least I'm not violent about it.

Peaceful protest is a form of violence. Its not physical, but it is very violent. Gandhi was extremely violent with regards to the Bristih occupation in India.

peace is better but its not always the right option. some people will only react to violence.

i really like that thinking,

i no im not the strongest person, personally i dont see how it matters in life at all

pride over superficial things like that is just plain stupidity
#28
they both have their place as someone said. violence should be used only in extreme measures where diplomatic efforts have been exhausted.

physically? yes. intellectually? clearly not. when was the last time noam chomsky was in a fist fight? violence is a result of frustration from not being able to express oneself. the stupider one is, the more prone he is to fighting because he knows no civilized way to resolve conflict.

Violence has solved far more conflicts in the past than peace. Peace only works when you are carrying a big enough stick already to dissuade others from violence against you. To state otherwise really is naive.

I can;t vote either way.

There are times and places for peace.
There are times and places for violence.

There's no way one can possibly say, without contradicting themselves, that one is better than the other in all situations.

I agree with you. I think violence is a natural human emotion, however it's the final and sure fire way to get what you want. If you are the strongest and best you get it. If not you lose (or in our ancestors case die). There are clearly much better ways to solve things than becoming violent...however with violence there is a well defined line...there is no compromise. Either you got beat down or you did the beating down...simple as that.

Peace is alwys better. But at times a little violence is required to nurture peace.

thats a big problem there too, people are almost never happy with what they have, and try to use force as a means to get it
