Alternative Method of Reasoning
If you happen upon a Peace Rally, do the following:
STEP 1) Approach an ignorant, person talking about peace and saying
there should be "no retaliation."
STEP 2) Have a brief conversation with him and ask if military force is
STEP 3) When he says, "No," ask him, "Why not?"
STEP 4) When he says, "Because that would just cause more innocent deaths,
which would be awful, and we should not cause more violence."
STEP 5) Punch him in the face, really hard.
STEP 6) When he gets up to punch you, point out to him that it would be a
mistake to punch you (and contrary to his values) because he would be
causing more violence.
STEP 7) When he agrees with you that he has pledged not to commit violence,
punch him in the face again, only even harder this time.
STEP 8) Repeat steps 2 through 7 until he understands that sometimes it is
necessary to punch back.
