In our individual lives, and international politics, when is it acceptable to strike first? Is it ever ok? Or are there only special circumstances that justify it?
Have you ever attacked someone first? How do you feel about it now? Or are there times in your life that you used restraint, that now, looking back, you wish you hadn’t?
I am not one for violence, and find that I have normally been able to defend myself best with words.
I did knee a boy in the nuts once, in high school – and yes, I wish I hadn’t.
