Violence-capability …

In learning to do violence well - and then choosing not to be violent - we arrive a step closer to the concept of the ‘peaceful warrior’. It’s easy to be ‘peaceful’ when we are harmless - as we simply have no other choice. Having the choice, imbues our decision with meaning ….

Note: Innumerable studies have shown that is actually quite difficult for the average human being to do serious violence; especially with respect to the killing of other human beings. For any interested - the best book on the subject in ‘On Killing’ by Lt Dave Grossman.
