Welcome to PTFTD, a (semi-)regular feature on my blog. Each (ideally daily) post I will raise a topic for consideration that may hopefully give you pause for some serious, or not-so-serious contemplation throughout your day/night/week/life.
It’s as much for my personal benefit as anyone else’s who may find it of interest, as we all try to figure out just what life is all about and what on Earth we are all doing here or to each other?
Violence is the resort of a weak and/or desperate person.
It is also simple to do, requiring little to no thought beforehand, and, unfortunately, can be quite effective at getting someone what they want to get and ensuring those it is used upon do not.
It is a throwback from our evolutionary past and should have NO place in our 21’st century societies.
We have a brain that should be trained how to achieve whatever we desire without the need to succumb to our baser emotions and the Law of the Jungle.
Physical might does NOT equal ‘Right’.
It is long past the time we were all better than this.
I need to think on this for a while (longer) 🙂
