I suppose it's an exaggeration.
Could you elaborate?
Well I guess that depends how many people want war? If only a handful do they will not be strong enough if we refuse. If many people desire war but not the majority we can simply refuse them the same as if few seeked war as we are still stronger. However say the majority want war then I suppose we could be enslaved but even then we could choose death but that assumes that those who want war will work together instead of fighting each other. In all cases the question remains which is more important your ideals or your life. I choose my ideals.
Well I will not. Ive been beaten within an inch of my life more than once and I never comprised my principles what makes you think war will change that. Those who praise peace but then go fight wars don't want peace they want praise
Defense is a shield not a sword for instance. Being a passifist doesn't mean being defenseless it means no offense. You can wear your attacker out. You can restrain them. You can out run them. What ed is their for killing and maiming. The weak kill and harm.
I'll take my chances. I've pulled it off a dozen times. I'm not saying being a passifist is easier I'm saying it's more ethical.
I don't want a world run by fear.
It just takes on crazy person to kill us all because of our obsession with mutually assured destruction as a safety net. I'm not saying passifism isn't without cons but atleast the cons won't fry the entire planet.
I cant have children I'm infirtile, but let's say I wasn't I would die so they had time to run. I'm not going to become a murder I'd rather die.
I'm 6'10'' 290 lbs of muscle if I can't hold my own against them I doubt I could kill them if I wanted to. Secondly I have a big family who will love and take care of them. And I'm sure they would think I was trash for giving up my life for them right? No I doubt anyone is that heartless
You are just looking for ways to justify murder and cruelty. None of that will happen. You know it won't you are just making up outlandish scenarios because you can't come up with any reasonable scenarios where I'd have to compromise my values.
And I gave you a reasonable answer but you keep adding on extra conditions to the question trying to box me into giving you the answer you want to hear. Self defense that does no harm is fine I said that from the start killing and maiming is not.
First you bring up my nonexistent child and say I would be a bad parent and do nothing to protect them. Then I tell you there are ways to protect with out harming or killing people. Then you say but what if those don't work. Then I say I'll die to give them time to escape. Then you say that won't work. Your answer to every arguement is that my method might not work. Well news flash I can make the same lame a rguement what if violence doesn't work what about that. What if nothing works? What then?
If you do not kill the ones who are trying to kill you, you die. Plain and simple Mr. 610, 290lbs of muscle. No debate needed.
Then why am I alive after so many people have tried to kill me then?
Because they obviously aren't trained very well in how to kill. You're a very big target. Anyone who misses you isn't ready for combat. Well, I'm glad they failed anyway; you have good intentions; I just think maybe you're somewhat naive. Not meant to be insulting; I just couldn't think of a nicer sounding way to say it.
Lucky for me it's been mostly close combat I mean I can't dodge a sniper
Just cause you have a gun or a knife and you are willing to use it doesn't mean you can protect anyone. You can be taken by surprise or be to weak or just be unlucky. You may feel safer with weapons or a think you can fight your way out like Rambo but at a certain point were all screwed if someone stronger than me comes after you your gonna die I don't care if you have a gun. I work out so that I'm stronger than anyone else so I don't have to fight I'm not defenseless. Being a pacifist doesn't make you weak.
My way does work I crossdress and men try to beat or kill me constantly and I'm a live aren't i? I come out on top. I've disarmed Gun and knives plenty of times. You can keep your hypothetical bullsh!t to yourself. I live in the real world and I'd bet my child's life on my skill and power any day and I'm not ashamed to say it. How many times have you been attacked and almost killed? I'll bet you I've had more close calls in a month than you have had in your entire life. I'm not gonna be like my attackers I'm better than that.
Well atleast my **** is tried and tested. I may not know what the future hold I could die any day but I will die with no regrets because I lived my life doing what I believed in. I hope you live the same way whatever you believe.
Then why even argue the merits of an imperfect strategy?
Your strategy is easier I could be much weaker if I used a gun. I don't deny your system has many advantages.
I am a jain. My whole religion is litteraly based on passifism. How would you like it if I said to you to drop all your beliefs? What if hypothetically the only way for you to save your child was to hate and curse God's name and commit every sin constantly and never repent? Would you become everything unholy to save your child?
Fine but you already are. You are litteraly talking down to my religions only tennet.
Your right there isn't you can disagree without trying to make passifism out to be immoral though.
I can handle oppinions. What I'm saying is if you start a fire don't be supprised it spreads. If you trash talk someone's values expect an arguement.
Everyone is crying out for peace.
None is crying out for justice.
But there will be not peace 'till man gets equal rights and justice.
I don't need to drop my arms to have peace...
If everyone dropped their arms...
Someone would pick up a stick and beat you senseless with it..
For as long as there are stupid people who will follow like sheep and fight for the ideals of others
I don't carry "arms".
