So you do agree that sometimes voilence is needed to establish peace?
No, I definitely do NOT agree!!
There are ALWAYS options before resorting to violence. Shunning, sequestering, public denouncing, even humiliation (not my first choice).....
what about DIPLOMACY and DISCIPLINE! Re-education? One on one tutoring? One can certainly be "empathetic" to a person's views while still
DISILLUSIONING them of their zealous misconceptions and COUNTERPRODUCTIVE thoughts and behaviors.
In my last post I addressed the obsolescence of the classic "Holy Scriptures".
I want to provide an analogy to how I see the strict adherence to early tutoring: a little child thinks that their parents are God. They NEVER
doubt, question, or assume that things are not the way their parents portray, nor that what their parents are doing might be challenged, questioned,
As the child grows, and sees the rest of the world (or town, or community), and speaks to others, visits their homes, works alongside them in
classrooms or chores...they will naturally talk. Children talk, and are curious. Eventually, a normal, healthy older child begins to recognize that
their parents were FLAT OUT WRONG about some things.
An adult who is still screaming "My Dad (or Mom) told me so, so it has to be true! SHUT UP!
" is not mature. Nor are they wise, nor have they
"differentiated" themselves in a healthy way.
