Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.

Isaac Asimov

Violence (and the threat of violence) is what people fall back on when logic, reason, courage, caring, love, and compassion fail to justify their position;

when what they espouse is so profoundly without merit that it cannot support its own dead weight; when truth cannot be found in their message;

when any reasonable human being would turn away from their premise.
