Most agree we want peace
yet say self-defence justifies
violence. “We must defend our
country” opens the door, for
where do we draw the line?

If an intruder breaks into
our home, do we shoot to kill
or only wound? When is killing
and violence justifiable?

“Thou shalt not kill,” does not
include “except…”

Solutions must come
before the violence begins.
