In this case Gerard Vanderleun attacks one of the “insidiously deceptive lines of the socialist-liberal agenda” which is “Violence doesn't solve anything.” As the story he links to states:
Pacifism is a sickness, an actual moral perversity, and dangerous when its effects spread to anyone else beside the pacifist. You may choose to walk to the cattle car, but damn you if you let your children be led up the ramp. You must never allow any group or government to steal your right to exercise armed lethal force in a just situation.This is a subject I've covered in the past, showing the old leftist saw to be nothing more than a pipe dream.
Violence does solve things. It has ended brutal dictatorships, saved citizens from the predation of criminals, prevented injustices on a small and large scale, and prevented wars.Indeed.
Perhaps the old saying needs to be modified. Instead, it should be "Violence never solves anything if it is used at the wrong time in the wrong place." Violence in and of itself solves nothing. It is the proper use of violence under the right circumstances that solves problems.
