It's all relative is it not?

Your question needs some context my friend... what do you consider Violence?

A slap across the face by a woman?

Image

A kick in the balls?

Image

A stabbing?

Image

A friendly jab to the arm between friends?

Image

Squatting a fly?

Image

Killing for food?

Image

Also, in some cultures some violence is acceptable whilst in others the same violence is frowned upon..

Also, it is about personal belief and degrees... some think a slap is not worth the mention, others think that a slap is the ultimate insult...

Some people just feel that violence is the best way to assert themselves.. its about the power trip.. IMO


So, it is all relative I guess...

But if you are referring to extreme violence as we know it (murder, rape, torture, sensless beatings etc), then the answer is a little simpler... Its about the power trip and control...

Absolutley no wrong answers here. i suppose it is relative Iwanci, and the context I'm thinking of is the pure joy of violence, killing, maiming, etc.



The school kid fighting reference was more about one way violence.

i'm not entirely sure why people get addicted to violence, or being violent, it sure seems to saturate our culture,
one of the reasons i can think of is people think it's all about "enforcing your own will", and "doing what it takes", the truth about power is inductive, meaning: if you KNOW what you want, then people give you their help to do what you want to do, without violence.

Think of the sun: it redirects energy which is sent to it, and so it grows. It doesn't all just burn up at once, it keeps burning bright because it sends out what it has, to where it's supposed to go.

The same way a parent does.

violence is ultimately a waste of energy, i think a great deal of it has to do with being Violated as a child, and then becoming vengeful: being weak and seeking harm for others because they "wronged" you, unable to let go of your hate for that person or thing.

Being in the flow, having strength, internal and external, has more to do with gentleness and patience and the ability to endure pain than violence to be honest.

One of the main problems as far as I see it is people confuse their definitions, or aren't clear about them to begin with.

how can you have a meaningful conversation like this?

Without even knowing what you and the other are talking about.

It's like watching Nascar or boxing. If I wanted to watch people speeding in their car, I'd go out to the highway. I want crashes. I don't want to watch two boxers pitty pat for 12 rounds, I want to watch someone get the F'K knocked out.

Human nature to watch the misfortunes of others. We live vicariously this way. Unfortunately

because thats what the earth is about us preditors and the food, its bred into us kill or be killed and when we live like we are not killers and supress our anger we tend to blow up and do crazy things. and for those who don't we like to watch it to release some of the anger without doing anything to anyone, inclueding helping them at that time .. common sence goes out the window............. emotions suck...
