DON'T YOU THINK VIOLENCE BEGETS VIOLENCE?



Violence begets violence. This is a simple, pure, unadultrated fact of life.

Yet we find at different times in the history of the world violent people terrorizing mankind and wantonly killing innocent people and destroying property. They have all met a violent death in the end.

The free world which wants to live in peace and harmony will ultimately catch up with the murderers and give them a befitting punishment. The vast majority of the people in the world shun violence and they have to be protected from demented, cruel, murderous, inhuman people who constitute an insignificant minority.

Appeasing evil doers will only go to encourage and motivate them to do more and more despicable acts. A thorn can be taken out only by a thorn and any amount of cajoling, persuasion and incentives will not produce the desired results. It will only be misread as a sign of weakness.

In any case those who take the sword will die by the sword. This happened to Hitler, Mussolini, Maximilien Robespierre and many other evil men who stalked the world unleashing violence and perpetrating mindless murders.

Peaceful people should always expect a violent man to come on the scene at some time or the other and it is the duty of all peace loving nations to nip violence in the bud.

Sometimes the leadership of a nation is violent and they encourage, sponsor, train and arm terrorists and sent them to other countries to cause havoc. Then it is the duty of United Nations to step in keeping aside their narrow national interests, take strong punitive measures and ensure that the evil leadership is removed without much loss of time.

What is your view on terrorism and terrorists?

  1. I mostly agree with you. What makes me so sad that so many innocents are hurt and killed. They are considered to be collateral damage and it is so wrong. I wish I had the answers.

  2. It's not just terrorists. I am preparing a blog about the way ordinary citizens think it's okay to take lives, whilst thanking my lucky stars that I don't have much longer on this earth.

  3. I do think that violence begets naught but violence. It's been shown time and time again. But there are rare cases where, through violence, peace is achieved. Look at the unification of Japan and China, and all the revolutions. The difference is which side you happen to be standing on at the time.

  4. Yes, I do believe that violence creates more violence. I don't know the best way to peace, but I hope the world's leaders can find the way there.

  5. violence is in our nature, it doesn't have to be nurtured. that's why i've always had a big nasty dog around the house to take care of any nogoodniks with violent intentions.

  7. Violence has become the world order today.It springs up first in one greedy mind(that mongers for power and luxury),gets shared wih other evil ones and soon it becomes an epidemic claiming innocent lives.

    'Peter Grimes' the poem depicts the crimes committed by a brutal who dies of hallucinations.He believed that the ghosts of all those he who he snuffed out haunted him. It shows no sin goes unpunished. The sinners will suffer sure or bear the sufferings of near and dear, until unless they repent or prevent themselves from sins. Nice topic.

  8. Yes. People who are greedy for power sometimes use violence in order to cause fear. But others feel they must defend themselves and the cycle continues.

  9. I totally agree that violence begets violence. We get what we give, for the most part. Terrorists can come in all colours, shapes, sizes and even religions. And terrorism, I believe, begins with hate and violence.

  10. This is a too big issue but so important. I agree that violence begets violence. As one being, I’m at a loss about what could be done to the ongoing mess of violence in the world. Wars could be stopped or avoided but how about terrorism? There are always someone who act against the society because they believe the society doesn't exist in the way they hope. Sadly it would impossible to stop terrorism but I have a hope that we could decrease terrorism when people see the same direction and work hard on the same goal, not being intimidated with fear.
