"i spit in the face of those who blather about ghandi and passive resistance.--"


it is immoral to not resist aggression.

whether in matters personal, political, religious or in statecraft, ..., it matters not, ... , to not resist aggression is to aid and abet the aggressor, and to assure that after your demise at his hands, he will seek the conquest of another. whatever you may feel the worth of the stance to you as a personal matter, by adopting such a stance, you assure the suffering of another: no high blown assertion of morality can escape this essential fact, and to inflict this suffering on another, perhaps less capable of protecting him or herself than you, is immoral, unethical, and unforgivable. -- summer patriot, winter soldier

Peace is not a virtue. Ask the North Koreans.

It is frustrating to read the thoughts of wise folk who think it's cute to refuse to use the established rules of language. It takes more away from them more then they know.

Other than that, nicely said.

I might agree, except in this case, I simply couldn't stop reading...and then rereading it.

I'll bet Ghandi sucked at paintball.

Just read a study on oxytocin, the "bonding" hormone. Bonding and loyalty imply an aggressive response to those who are aggressors and invaders against the object of one's loyalties.
