Violence as Policy

I am seeking for words to describe my emotions regarding todays events. It truly saddens me that most of our world accepts violence as a appropriate and effective means of political change. This attitude seems to permeate every country, religion, and political theory.

"Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent."
Isaac Asimov

"Victory attained by violence is tantamount to a defeat, for it is momentary."
Mahatma Gandhi
