Alex Delizonas Posted 17 days ago Scilla Elworthy: Fighting with non-violence It is all sounds very nice from the stage, but it`s completely unpractical. On every story she tells about a non-violence win I (and most certainly everyone) can tell a hundred of stories about brutal, barbaric violence that is so primitive and uncontrollable, that just flushes away everything around it. So, well, probably she wasn`t giving an actual "how to" instructions... but therefore I don`t see any point in this talk at all. We know, violence is bad, non violence is good, self-control is good and etc. We now that peaceful technics of operation have been already developed and used in military and police forces of many countries... And still... there is violence, a lot of it, from the level of school hall bullying and to the military invasion to another country. And there is no way you can overcome it by kneeling or putting flowers in a gun muzzle. Sorry, sad but true.
