The psychopaths of Wall Street, the Fed and world wide central banks using their minions thrive on violence. It is the moneymaker to end all moneymakers. It is the control mechanism of the ages. It is our biggest business and almost our only business.
Our violence is exported all over the world through armaments, psychological operations, paid for mercenaries, our own paid for soldiers, bribery and blackmail. Theft demands it.
Indeed, for a few, violence is golden.

A lot of people like to think they are “non-violent.” Generally, people claim to “abhor” the use of violence, and violence is viewed negatively by most folks. Many fail to differentiate between just and unjust violence. Some especially vain, self-righteous types like to think they have risen above the nasty, violent cultures of their ancestors. They say that “violence isn’t the answer.” They say that “violence doesn’t solve anything.”
They’re wrong. Every one of them relies on violence, every single day.
On election day, people from all walks of life line up to cast their ballots, and by doing so, they hope to influence who gets to wield the axe of authority. Those who want to end violence — as if that were possible or even desirable — often seek to disarm their fellow citizens. This does not actually end violence. It merely gives the state mob a monopoly on violence. This makes you “safer,” so long as you don’t piss off the boss.
All governments — left, right or other — are by their very nature coercive. They have to be.
Order demands violence.
A rule not ultimately backed by the threat of violence is merely a suggestion.
Without action, words are just words. Without violence, laws are just words.
Violence isn’t the only answer, but it is the final answer.
I don't agree with everything Donovan says in his essay but he gets some basic points correct. Violence or the threat of it equals peace? We have heard that many times. It is used for wars and a multitude of other criminal endeavors. We need to turn the tables on on those threatening profit motivated violence but that may mean we would have to use violence against them. Most of us would not look forward to that. Is there another way?
