Lesser violence is still violence so violence is not relative. It is truth that no one has the right to use violence except for self defense. Any violence that harms others for self gain comes with consequences. Being civil is always the high road — Do No Harm, But take no nonsense. That can be done without have to resort to name-calling. Words are harmful and have power. Responding to hatred with hatred does not solve anything. Agitating for better treatment can be done with words of wisdom and power.
