Violence quotes

Leon Trotsky
Under all conditions well-organized violence seems to him the shortest distance between two points.

J. G. Ballard
Perhaps violence, like pornography, is some kind of an evolutionary standby system, a last-resort device for throwing a wild joker into the game?

Jim Morrison
We fear violence less than our own feelings. Personal, private, solitary pain is more terrifying than what anyone else can inflict.

Dennis Prager
How a society channels male aggression is one of the greatest questions as to whether that society will survive. That's why I am not against violence in the media, I am against the glorification of immoral violence.

Mao Tse-Tung
Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun.

John Ruskin
Punishment is the last and the least effective instrument in the hands of the legislator for the prevention of crime.

William Ury
We tend to think the problem is human beings have this natural tendency to kill, and yet in the middle of a hot war, WWII, a "good war," as it were, the US army was astonished to learn that at least three out of every four riflemen who were trained to kill and commanded to kill, could not bring themselves to pull the trigger when they could see the person they were ordered to kill. And that inner resistance to violence is a well kept secret.

Jacob Bronowski
Who has not hoped To outrage an enemy's dignity? Who has not been swept By the wish to hurt? And who has not thought that the impersonal world Deserves no better than to be destroyed By one fabulous sign of his displeasure?
