Violence isn't solved with more violence - that is an oxymoron. The only way to solve violence is by doing the opposite - being peaceful to one another.

Sometimes being peaceful works, but if someone is being violent towards you, being peaceful might result in you being injured or dying. Fight with those who fight with you but never be the aggressor.

That assumes the other is like minded. In many cases, the other is bent on violence. What then.

You have heard that it was said,
‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth'

But I tell you,
do not resist an evil person.
If anyone slaps you on the right cheek,
turn to them the other cheek also.

And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt,
hand over your coat as well.
If anyone forces you to go one mile,
go with them two miles.

Give to the one who asks you,
and do not turn away from
the one who wants to borrow from you.

love your enemies
and pray for those who persecute you

Agreed. Violence only breeds more violence.

So all we would have to have done in WW II is to be NICE to the Nazi's and the Japanese and the whole thing would have been over ? NOT !!

This is one of those things that sounds great, but doesn't have a lot of depth. Real life has a lot more nuance than that.

ha, try that on here

I think you need to look up oxymoron.

If we as a country simply ignore violence towards us, it will only continue. Violence is sometimes needed

i believe that when peace no longer gets these violent peoples attention, a sharp swift supernatural use of force will be necessary to end it once and for all. Just because we havent fought damn sure doesnt mean tou can

That's a tough one I don't believe in violence, however when it comes to my kids all bets are off.

if some one is out to harm me or family and friends I hope they can run fast

You can't fix stupid.

Well you want to tell that to muslims.

Oh being peaceful does work, if used correctly.
