Punching a kid no matter how slightly demonstrates no less violence than fully punching an adult.
Tell me, do Mike Tyson and a 6 year old kid take a punch the same way? No.

Gaiseric, you're pure gold.

Why would you have to punch the 6-year-old? Just grab him or push him around. Anyway, southern_html, if you're daily getting beat up by 6 and 12 year old kids, there's a reason why you're in that school.

OMW I seriously don't agree with your "violence is equal" philosophy. It's a totally different thing to hit a woman or a child than a grown up man.

Agreed. Same with theft. Sure it's bad to steal something from a millionaire, but if you stole the same thing from a third-world child, it's morally a lot worse.

You're all looking it from the wrong perspective. It's not about the recipient of the punch! It's YOU WHO'S DELIVERING THE PUNCH. Violence is wrong because of the one who PERFORMS it. My point is not that it's somehow as acceptable to hit a kid as an adult, it's that PUNCHING IS WRONG EQUALLY against big men as small men. (Ofcourse big men cause reason to defend yourself oftener...?)

You don't. My point is you don't HAVE TO punch ANYONE. I submitted my unsure opinion on necessary violence earlier in this thread so...

My question was pointed to those who want to kick this poor kid's ass, not you.

Anyway, I understand your philosophy concerning violence. It's a beautiful and noble attitude and way of thought, but in my opinion, it's at odds with the world. But I respect it.

Pacifism is like communism: nice in theory and all, but phails horribly in life.

(not that I'm saying your viewpoint is necessarily pacifist, mind you)

My view IS pacifistic. The thing is, I can only wish that all people were pacifistic. Pacifism is great because you don't need THE WHOLE WORLD'S WORKING CLASS or anything, it's just you with your decision. Pacifism never fails in life unless you screw up, whereas communism is screwed up because of the anonymity provided by mass. Also, dictatorship?
Oh well, I think this is thus settled?

Pacifism doesn't work because of a simple thing called human psychology. Humans are warlike, we always have been and we will continue to be, unless we can get some sort of weird children-raising machine which devotes itself to rooting out all violence from the baby.

Umm, pacifism works because AN INDIVIDUAL can deny violence and hold on to it. Pacifism doesn't necessarily require the whole bloody world to do the same thing and wear uniforms. It's the individual who decides not to be violent that's important.

And to me this doesn't mean that I can't make mistakes. I'm somewhat violent time to time via words and I also act violently toward certain machinery. It's the will that counts and with individuals that's enough. I'm not talking about a big change in the society that's supposed to take place in order to make me happy. Ofcourse I resent violence but I have peace of mind through non-violence.

And look I'm not saying everyone of you should turn to pacifists now. I think what I'm trying to say is violence is not necessary and pacifism works, at least for me. And I really never heard of Gandhi, Dalai-Lama or Tolstoi hitting someone because 'they deserved a punch in the face', or even saying anyone deserves a punch in the face. Violence might be rooted in human kind but is possible to root out from individuals by themselves. [/optimism]

But pacifism renders you helpless when it comes to defending yourself. Basically, I could deny violence and still end up in intensive care after being pummeled for an hour. If some prick comes for trouble, would you rather explain to him that I don't believe violence works, in which case the prick demonstrates the opposite, or kick him in the nads? I'd choose the latter.

Pacifism does require sacrificing, but it doesn't necessarily render you helpless. Also, I think Gandhi said that violence is still better than cowardice. If I'll ever use pacifism as an excuse to be lazy or cowardlike, you can call me and tell me I should be ashamed of myself. But if someone beats me up, who's the crook, the one who beats me or myself?
I believe that in a situation like this I would employ violence in order to try and escape, but by far I've never needed violence to accomplish anything useful.
But you know there ARE self-defence methods such as judo that allow you to simultaneously avoid getting thrashed by rendering the aggressor unable to be violent with you not having to really hurt him, though this may be regarded as violence as well. I don't see it as violence but rather limiting someone's physical freedom in order to convince them not to be violent? Man, I've got to start taking judo lessons, now that I think about it.

If you have to choose which one doesn't work, pacifism or violence, it's the violence.

Yes, I guess the moral satisfaction of knowing you haven't hurt a bad person is superior to the physical damage you'll get.[/sarcasm]

No, I'd hardly be satisfied at any rate. But I'd imagine it's better than me beating him up instead even if remaining uninjured myself... Not that I could do that!

Yeah stupid foreign names, you can't tell the girls' names apart from the boys'. Fadawah, I think the reason why that put you on a bad mood is because you're a sexist!
No, in fact it's because you've formulated an image named 'What kind of a gorilla Terk is.jpg' and now someone's telling you you've got it wrong and that causes slight uncomfortability. You have a hint of what the world is to autistic cases. You see they don't get those pictures right at all because they can't see the patterns. And if they see a pattern somewhere they're obsessed about it. How 'bout that huh?

Well, the trouble was not so much my perception as the way the character was depicted in movie. She had a really masculine voice, a tomboy attitude, and it's kinda hard to tell if PG-rated cartoon gorillas are male or female, y'know?

Nevertheless, it was kind of unsettling that I thought Terk was male for all those years and only now do I get proven wrong.

Yeah well I agree they didn't indicate the character's sex (OR SEXUALITY) very clearly so confusion was inevitable? I didn't in fact pay too much attention, I guess I thought she was a boy?
But yeah, not that it matters too much because sexuality was disappointingly absent in the movie except for Tarzan's clothes and in the end of the movie, Jane's clothes, if you consider the standards of the time. (Late 19th century I guess?) Oh well there was very vague hinting when Tarzan meets Jane the first time. But gorillas? Disney thinks they can ignore entirely that gorillas got sexuality, too, dudes and ladies! They don't have this thing, 'social boundaries'? Oh I guess they do but come on, it's not like they're wearing clothes. Brighten up, Disney. You're being a real grandma over this.
