    It's well justified under a tyrannical dictatorship, but eliminating leaders in a democracy via assassination accomplishes very little.

    Nothing is born without violence. But then it should be rationally conducted. Pogroms can be left in the past and killing people over a belief is unbelievably stupid.

    Most important thing: it shouldn't be about saving/preserving lives. That's a reoccurring theme in pacifistic circles: "Death should always be avoided. One must submit to the most humiliating conditions if it guarantees that human beings won't be sacrificed in the process."

    We're reaching a point in the social and political arenas where well-organized violence might be the only reasonable option left.

    Frankly, I think the time for trying to reason with our enemies is over.

    The SJW movement has tuned out any attempt made by those who use diplomacy to avert the inevitable alternative.
    Aside from an ever increasing number of mortals who have willfully chosen to worship Satan and his minions, our battle has always been against the powers and principalities operating surreptitiously throughout this twisted world.

    yes/yes

    Bread is begged for, power is fought for.

    This has been the case since the dawn of mankind, in all ages and under any condition and doesn't change just because someone philosophically doesn't agree with it.


    "The fact that a people no longer has the strength or the will to remain in the sphere of the political, the political does not disappear from the world. Only a weak people disappear. "
    Carl Schmitt, The Concept of the Political, 1927, p. 54

    "Lex autem eorum a gladio cepit, per gladium tenetur et in gladio terminabitur."
    Thomas Olivier (Oliver von Paderborn)

    "For their law has begun with the sword, is sustained with the sword and will end by the sword."
    When men cease to fight — they cease to be — Men.
    “Critics are like eunuchs in a harem; they know how it's done, they've seen it done every day, but they're unable to do it themselves.” Brendan Behan
