Hello, I open this thread to speak about non violence and pacifism. Even if I admire the life of Martin Luther King, I'm however more pessimistic than him. First I will make the difference between two kind of pacifism : _ The pacifism of the one who won't fight because he is too afraid or too weak to fight. _ The pacifism of the one who could fight but won't because he think a better solution can be found otherwise. From my own experience, I'm born crippled, agressivity is a good thing. A lot of social relationships require a dosis of agressivity. Many people consider that a lack of agressivity is a weakness and would use that to crush people. Nowodays ideology of non violence is toxic, it turned people into weakling. They didn't learned pacifism, they learned submission. True pacifism can only be reached by people able of fighting but who choose of not fighting; otherwise it's just weakness, and that weakness will be used by the one willing to use this flaw. The main consequence for me is that it's imperative to learn back to younglings, especially males but female too, to be strong, agressive and brave.
