I am in the middle of attempting to develop a logical, holistic view of violence that I can use as a working reference in dialogue concerning the issues that revolve this issue.
I have found that there are many different views and understandings of what violence entails. This creates voids in dialogue, because I most likely view violence differently than you do. So in order to dialogue about something we must share a common language. so...how would you define violence?
Personally, I would begin here:
- It is physical, emotional, spiritual, & mental.
- It involves force.
- It can be done with good or bad intentions
How would you combine, add to, and refine these idea into a basic understanding of violence?
