The Only Answer?Posted: August 15, 2012
Graphic lifted from CA’s Western Rifle Shooters Association:
Violence is never the only answer. It just seems that way when push comes to shove and frustration turns to anger. Even when you’ve thought ahead about the amount of shit up with which you will not put, a violent answer marches in lockstep with anger, and anger cannot co-exist with reason.
Ender’s Game is a novel by Orson Scott Card. Card deals with the subject of aggression and violent reaction to aggression. I won’t ruin the story for you, but thinking about the proper response to aggression always brings me back to this story.
