I remember describing to some family members, in excited fascination, some new insight I got into self defence and violence prevention. To my amazement, they were horrified by what I was describing. The general consensus was that ‘it’s all so violent’. The discussion went on to the moral opposition of violence, and eventually the following sentence came up:
‘I hate violence’.
Well, I’m here to tell you something. If you say that you hate violence, you are either naive or silly.
Don’t believe me? Well, read on and I’m sure I can change your mind!
