However, my statement was simply an observation that there are many people who think that it is justifiable to use interpersonal force against people in order to accomplish their ends.
In my opinion, interpersonal force is ONLY justified as a RESPONSE to harm (i.e. unsolicited actions that physically affect another's person or property). There is no justification for using interpersonal violence against someone who has not not harmed anyone or their property.
So, in order to understand where you're coming from, I asked you your opinion on the subject. Do you think is it justified to initiate interpersonal violence against someone who is not or has not harmed someone else?
"He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
Every political good carried to the extreme must be productive of evil.
“If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures.”
