If you'd ever had to hurt someone, you KNOW THAT!
There is nothing noble or good, about beating the shit outta someone.
Just ask any soldier who's had to kill. No matter how superior they may believe their side or cause to be, the act leaves a sour taste in their mouths. We use it as a last resort, to defend ourselves and our families, but nothing in the act of violence is "moral".
Yes, and according to what you just wrote here, if you defend your wife, you are being just as immoral as someone who attacks your wife.
POD...equality IS a basic tenet of our democracy. That's why, no matter how much a hill-billie might howl and scream for...lets say a return of slavery, HE CANNOT TAKE SUCH ACTIONS! He can say it...but he cannot do it.
And yet, racism, slavery, and oppression have all occurred in democracies.
But if a person tries to stop a lynching by using his fists, he is just as bad as the people involved in the lynching!
Does this also apply to self-defense? If a black person tries to defend himself frim a pack of racist skinheads, he should just take the beating because if he hits back, he is just as bad.
There is a crack in everything,
That's how the light gets in...
