I've given a lot of thought to this over the years. I used to be a pacifist who believed very similar to you in this regards, but I now wonder what

at least we can concentrate our swift and humane punishments (without hatred and anger) on those that actively make this world a worse place by their
The winds are now strong, and due to no one being willing to stand up and call out people and thinking that create more chaos than good in this world,
we are going to be bringing more chaos until someone grabs the helm and says enough is enough.
