A Theory of Violence

Proponents of violent action must be able to respond to The Scenario:

What would you do if a man approached your family and didn’t do anything at all? How would you respond to the uncertainty of what he might not do?



Are “proponents of violent action” proponents of the use of force in self-defense? I’m a little confused.

Sort of. It’s supposed to mean something along the lines of “everyone who protests that nonviolence is an ineffective and stupid theory of action.”

What if a man approached your family carrying a big metal canister of compressed air?

It depends. Do we have a flat tire?
