    RE: Is violence really avoidable?

    I'm a pacefist at heart, but I think that violence can be unavoidable in certain situations. Like if some uninvited guest was in your house with a cricket bat, though you can't run them through with a sword, you can still bludgeon them with a broom until they leave or get knocked out.Bullying happens everywhere, that's unavoidable, just people handle things differently.

    RE: Is violence really avoidable?

    i may play american football, but i really don't like to cause violence toward people or get into fights. at heart, i'm genuinely a peaceful person. but sometimes, there isn't any other way to retaliate but with violence. it's just the way it is.

    a little anecdote as an example:

    back when i was a little tyke in the second grade there was this kid who was, to put it bluntly, a d**k. sure, he got punished for it, with recess detentions and eventually regular detentions, but that didn't really stop him. so he's bullying this other kid one day, and i when over and told him to stop. he decided to come charging at me, so i punched him in the middle of his face. i broke two of his teeth, fractured one of my knuckles, and was almost expelled over it. him? he didn't really talk for the rest of the week (it was a monday), and then he moved out of the school. i never saw him again.

    the moral: don't use violence to inflict others pain, only use it in self defense or to protect the rights of others.

    Very intense story, Vegeta. Thanks for telling us. This all relates back to what I said about how punishments really aren't the answer to stop violence all together. It's really a difficult quandary to deal with.

    RE: Is violence really avoidable?

    I think detention and such becomes ineffective for certain kids as really, the only kids who I knew who were really concerned about getting detention were the well behaved ones. The "bad" kids were like "lolwut" most of the time when I was in grade school as they all got used to it and were pretty much friends with the kids who got in trouble all the time as they would all be gathered there.

    RE: Is violence really avoidable?

    If any one ask to me this question is violence really avoidable? you can expect my answer in positive yes violence is really avoidable thing. I don't understand why people used violence to go ahead in their life.People will think I am writing all of these because I am cowards so they are thinking wrong because I am black belt champion and I also got training of marshal art. But I never used this power to make my leadership but I always behaved politely if any one abused me.If you have don't control on your self so consult with psychiatrist or make your career in action movies as a enemy of hero.

    RE: Is violence really avoidable?

    Violence is generally avoidable. I think if you're unlucky you might end up in a situation where you've got no choice but on an everyday basis, I think violence is really the last resort.


    Perhaps it's different for women compared to men but I've never hit anyone in my life, even as a kid, and I can't imagine a situation where I'd need unless it was something life-threatening.

    RE: Is violence really avoidable?

    Well, being beaten up by a bully like in my past as an example isn't exactly life-threatening, but I'd rather not go home with cuts and bruises than be a pushover. Fighting back ended up in worse outcomes a few times for me, but a couple of times I was victorious. I won't hit a guy when he's down, but in such a situation I won't go down without fighting back.

    Of course, that's different for guys as it typically is for girls, but if a drunk woman decided to attack you, you'd have to make the decision.
    Gene: "Have faith in me guys, enjoy the ride—you're in good hands. I can handle this. I can do it!"
    Jim: "How do you know?"
    Gene: "I don't!"
    Jim: "I knew it."
    Gene: "That's okay. There's a first time for everything!"

    RE: Is violence really avoidable?

    Something that made my blood boil in school was when a teacher told you "if a fight breaks out, tell a teacher". How in the f**k do you expect me to walk away from someone who is trying to kick mine or someone else's head in, to go and report it. They seriously had no grip on how things actually worked in the school yard. The problem with a bully is, if you don't fight back, they will continue to walk all over you. Telling a teacher doesn't do shit, because they either do nothing, or give a detention or something weak, like that. All that does is make you look like a pussy, for not defending yourself and gives the bully more of a reason to attack in the future.

    I really try to be a peaceful person. I really don't like any kind of confrontation, physical or not. I'm very good at avoiding fights, but some people only understand one language. If they are trying to instigate something, I feel nothing but pleasure in knocking them down a peg or two.

    RE: Is violence really avoidable?

    I believe in the case of bullying, violence may be the only recourse available, sadly enough.
    There are many ways to deal with bullies, from simply ignoring them to going to a teacher or other adult (which, IMO is down right stupid, considering they'll likely just get suspended, come back mad, and beat you worse).
    But if it comes down to it, you may have no choice but to get violent, especially if the bully is physically harassing you.

    In the world we live in, there are people who are just raised the wrong way, or not raised at all. When someone has an abusive parent, he/she will more than likely take that out on someone they perceive as weaker than him/herself, causing a snowball effect of violence.

    I saw it happen in high school myself, but now that I'm older, I notice that the bullies usually don't get much farther than high school, and get low end jobs, so in the work force, they're usually not there to bother others. But if there IS a violent person in your workplace, I really don't see violence as an answer. That would simply put the both of you in jail for assult, which is not the most glamorous place to be. If anything, I think the best way to deal with a violent adult is to call the police. Violence should be avoided at all costs when your an adult because the "They're just kids" argument obviously won't get you too far in a court of law.
