Meanwhile in the strange and distant land of 'reality' some of us realise that asides from all this macho bullshit you're a 16 year old kid and if you were faced by a group of aggressive adults and tried that sort of mentality on you'd be trying to suck your meals up through a straw shortly afterwards. There are times to fight and times not to fight, 'Always stand your ground.' sounds very nice, but it's not realistic.
If a non-violent solution to a problem yields better results (beyond immediate mindless gratification) than a violent one then it is the solution that should be taken, or at least, tried for. But I think most people agree it would be foolish to say that violence is always wrong, or at least to expect others to follow such a standard.
True, Dark. War is violent, and is sometimes unavoidable. Take WWII, for example. After having a bunch of our sailors killed and a lot of our ships sunk, do you think everyone's just going to be quiet and pretend it didn't happen? Absolutely not. If we didn't act, we'd get hit again...and again...and again. In such a situation, violence is necessary.
