Pacifism Vs. Rewilding states: "In order for things to live they have to eat, which means they have to kill. Whether you kill a plant or an animal, you use violence to do it. I don’t judge violence as “good” or “bad” because I see it as a simply function of nature...
Our culture conflates abuse with violence because those in power control us using violence or the threat of violence. To live as a domesticated human means to live by the wishes of rulers or face the consequences. Killing a life differs from torturing a life into submission. We have a name for that kind of violence; abuse."
Remember: when the White Men came to Turtle Island, Hopi pacifism did not stop the domistication of the Native Americans, but the Lakota wars only delayed the inevitable.
Who was the most effective?
And then again:
When the Zionist entered Palestina, the Arabs responded in force when the Zionist state was founded.
Now the Native Palestine people are fighting their ghetto war in Gaza.
Time will tell who was the most effective....
