Continue the Oppressive Cycle of Violence, or Embrace the Non-Aggression Principle?

The following debate originally took place on my Facebook wall, upon my post, “Violence is the Language of the Oppressor!“…

Rayn: The Non-Aggression Principle is the foundation of True Peace! Violence is the language of the Oppressor, and “the last refuge of the incompetent.” Those who follow after Cain will indeed find themselves among their brethren… in the Pit!

Oh, you believe in violent revolution? Tell me about how your use of violence is different than the State's use of violence?

Adam G.: My violence is different from the state’s because I am protecting myself. If you can’t see the difference, then you either have a metric fucktonne of privielge or don’t pay attention.

Rayn: Hmmm… To begin, Adam, if you can’t see the difference between physical self-defense and violent revolution… please let me know, and I will be more than happy to explain! I would never deny another the right to physical self-defense in the event of an immediate threat of violence. That is a personal CHOICE, to be made with respect to each situation, even. 🙂

Second, you have committed three logical fallacies in your conclusion. (1) The False Dichotomy: There are many more reasons than the two you have presented to explain why I would be unable to see difference between “[your] violence” versus the State’s use of it. (2) An Ad Hominem Attack: Claiming me to have either a “metric fucktonne of privilege  or to be “not paying attention” are unsubstantiated personal jabs at me, and do nothing to further an explanation of your position, and really only support your last error, (3) An Appeal to Ridicule: Mocking what you believe is my position does nothing to explain your position. This is true, regardless of what form of mockery you engage in, really.

I will be happy to continue this discussion with you, but you must stay on track. Let’s share ideas. I enjoy it. Also, be sure to let me know if you are referring to physical self-defense, or violent revolution, when you mention “[your] violence,” as I am not sure, since your wording leaves much room to interpret “protecting [your]self” as self-defense, especially since you did not elaborate on your position whatsoever, and presented an Appeal to Ridicule. To me, this means that we might just be dealing with a matter of semantics, here. 🙂

Violence is the Language of the Oppressor!

As I scrolled through my Facebook news feed, I discovered the following artwork here, being shared by the page, “Liberty 3VOLution,” and originally posted it to my own wall, along with commentary…

"Oh, you believe in violent revolution? Tell me about how your use of violence is different than the State's use of violence?"

Cop Who Attempted to Stop Police Brutality May Lose Job

I originally posted the following information and commentary onto my Facebook wall…

Officer Regina Tasca attempts to stop fellow cops from using excessive force against a "suspect"

Bogota Officer May Be Fired For Stopping Beatdown:

Plenty of cop “beat downs” can be found online, but how often does the officer who stops others from handing out the beating get fired for it? That’s exactly what’s happening to Officer Regina Tasca in the Bogota Police Department.

Tasca’s dashboard camera captured her as she attempted to stop two officers from beating an emotionally disturbed young man. Just days after the incident, she was told she was being suspended with pay. A year later, her trial is about to begin as the Bogota PD seeks to fire her.

My Commentary: She sees a crime in progress by fellow officers, stops it, and she’s suspended for it! Apparently, she didn’t realize that the biggest gang in America wears blue and carries a badge!

Discussing Human Trafficking…

The following correspondence originally took place upon the Facebook wall of an ex-acquaintance…

Chris C.: Anyone got 5 minutes to think about something besides your self?

Survivors of Human Trafficking:

Rayn: There’s always time to think, talk, debate, write and share about things other than the self:
