Quote of the Day: Violence for Comfort

An anon lashes out against pacifism coming from people who already have it good.

Quoth Anon

Life on Earth is violent. Everything alive must kill in order to survive. Just because you are shielded from the violence being carried out for your comfort doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen. Idiot.

Yes, I left the “Idiot” part in purposefully.

I would clarify the above quote by saying that Life on Earth under class systems is violent. Life on Earth does not have to be violent.

Btw, read the actual article that spawned the comment. Quite an interesting counter-argument to pacifism.

One thought on “Quote of the Day: Violence for Comfort”

  1. Unless one is absolute Vegan (and even them I'm not 100% sure) then life on earth will always have to be violent, class system or not. No matter how humanely you do it, killing animals for food will always have a violent aspect to it. So IMHO that quote is very good and very accurate.
