  • When Is Political Violence Acceptable? -- Just War Theory, Utilitarianism, and the Regressive Left

    On January 20th, 2017, Richard Spencer got sucker punched by an antifa protester at Donald Trump's presidential inauguration. While the unprovoked assault itself was reprehensible, there was a much larger implication - many individuals on the regressive left began to praise Spencer's attacker on social media, stating that the unprovoked attack was justified solely because he was a neo-nazi. The floodgates had been opened, with large numbers of people coming out of the woodwork to call for unprovoked political violence against people who disagree with their ideology. Let's take an in-depth look at political violence. Can it ever be considered acceptable, on any scale, large or small? Warfare is considered to be a large-scale form of political violence. Can there ever be a just war tha...

  • Political Violence against MDC in Zimbabwe

    This secretly-filmed video exposes Newton Kachepa, MP for Mudzi North, inciting violence against people who belong to the opposition party Movement for Democratic Change (MDC). "You say ZANU-PF kills? It doesn't kill. If you provoke it, it destroys", he tells a group of ZANU-PF supporters. We also see a man claim that Kachepa boasted about killing opponents and threatened that he could be next. Later, the film shows a ZANU-PF rally confront an MDC rally in which one MDC supporter was killed and seven more severely injured.

  • The Story Behind Jamaica's Violence

    Author Marlon James discusses his Booker Prize-winning work, "A Brief History of Seven Killings," on the topic of Jamaica's historical violence. From the slum neighbourhoods of Kingston to the political divisiveness around Bob Marley's "Smile Jamaica" concert and the assassination attempt against him during the 1970s, the novel uses a multitude of voices to tell the story of the hostility that gripped the island nation from the Cold War to the drug wars of the 1980s and 1990s.

  • When Political Violence Goes Mainstream, We All Lose -- Colin’s Last Stand (Episode 40)

    Violence is rarely justified. Yet, its political use is being normalized by increasingly erratic and dangerous groups of extremists. It’s time for the overwhelming majority of good and decent people in this world to break their silence and condemn violence, in whatever form it may take, unless it's absolutely necessary. And when it comes to what’s happening in the streets of America, it’s far from justified. CORRECTION: At 10:35, the video points to a story about a man attacked over his "Nazi" haircut. After the video went live, this story was declared false.

    War. What is it good for? Absolutely nothing (woah-oh-oh-oh...). Sure, that might be the popular refrain from Edwinn Star's 1970 hit, but it's also the sentiment shared by author and intellectual Salman Rushdie. Rushdie explains that public discourse has become far too personal, and that people too often conflate their feelings with their beliefs. This leads to a polarized climate wherein neither side wants to back down... something anyone observing today's politics might be familiar to. Salman Rushdie's latest book is The Golden House.

  • 08/08/2017: Kenya set for more political violence? | The end of the line for Al Jazeera?

    Kenya held its presidential elections on Tuesday. But the run up to the votes was marred by fears of violence in eastern Africa's largest economy. Although both candidates called for a peaceful vote to maintain regional and economic stability, the risks remain high. So is history set to repeat itself and will Kenya see political violence again? Israel has said it plans to revoke the media credentials of Al Jazeera journalists working in the country and close the network's office in Jerusalem. Is Israel aligning itself with the Arab states that severed diplomatic ties with Qatar? And is Al Jazeera biased or is the network being sacrificed as collateral damage in regional power politics?

The floodgates had been opened, with large numbers of people coming out of the woodwork to call for unprovoked political violence against people who disagree with their ideology. Let's take an in-depth look at political violence. Can it ever be considered acceptable, on any scale, large or small? Warfare is considered to be a large-scale form of political violence. Can there ever be a just war that is not in self-defense? If so, does that rationale also scale downward: can there ever be a form of interpersonal assault that is not in self-defense that is also justified? Can armed rebellions, civil wars, and independence movements be justified forms of political violence? Can TERRORISM ever be a justified form of political violence? The regressive left has already given its answer: "YES, if the target of that violence has politics that don't fit our ideology!" But what is the end result of that logic? And why do those on the regressive left not only believe it, but believe it with a carefree, cavalier attitude about the whole affair? Let's dive into these questions. ----- Sargon of Akkad's "Punching Nazis at the UC Berkeley Riots" - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DyC80feMcgU Erik Kain's vlog - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0KChRqaxKAI ----- If you like these videos, please consider...

There simply isn’t. You can’t say that people standing up against Nazism, white supremacy and racism are the same as the people who are in fact white supremacist, neo-Nazis and racists. The moral equivalence doesn’t exist and I think everyone, except the occupant of the Oval Office, can see that. And I’ve always thought that the great thing, and I think this is exactly where [Richard] Dawkins comes out, is that you have to make a distinction between ideas and people, and that it’s perfectly legitimate to express even vehement dislike of ideas and of belief systems, but it’s not acceptable to turn that into bigotry against people who are part of those belief systems. So you have to protect the person but not protect the ideology. I think the nature of intellectual activity is that ideas are up for discussion, and if I don’t like your ideas it’s entirely proper that I should say so. But for me to treat you in a bigoted fashion because I don’t agree with you is not acceptable. So if you think the world is flat, and I think you’re an idiot, it’s okay for me to say that. So I think we have to retain that ability to be able to have open discourse about ideas and not to become afraid that we’re offending somebody, because actually the open, intellectual discourse... it often offends people. I remember once being invited to a lunch at MIT, a rather humbling lunch because of the kind of two dozen or so people around the table maybe 20 of them had won the Nobel Prize. And I was very interested the way in which they talked to each other about each other’s ideas—it was pretty much brutal. They would call each other idiots and fools for having certain scientific theories, I mean the most frank language was being used. I thought this is extraordinary; what are these people going to say about each other after lunch is over? But actually the moment the lunch was over it was obvious that they were on perfectly good terms with each other and they had no hard feelings, and they were perfectly willing to have that kind of very abrasive interchange without taking it personally, and I thought that was really quite impressive. To me that’s the kind of model of the intellectual life: that you could be as abrasive as you like at the level of ideas, but you don’t make it personal. I also do a bit of adverse writing [advertising?], I do a bit of lecturing around the country and I was not so long ago lecturing in Florida in a town called Vero Beach, which is near Cape Canaveral, and the audience was older, it was very white, it was very conservative, and I would’ve said a very large majority of them had probably voted for Trump. I have to say they were very civil, very courteous, they heard me out, nobody booed or threw things or walked out—it was a civilized encounter, but there were very strong disagreements. So in the Q&A, for example, I had said something in my remarks about climate change and a gentleman at the microphone said how I was completely wrong because when I said that all these scientists basically supported my views on climate change that wasn’t right, and then we got into a kind of “yes it is, no it isn’t” thing.

Kenya held its presidential elections on Tuesday. But the run up to the votes was marred by fears of violence in eastern Africa's largest economy. Although both candidates called for a peaceful vote to maintain regional and economic stability, the risks remain high. So is history set to repeat itself and will Kenya see political violence again? Israel has said it plans to revoke the media credentials of Al Jazeera journalists working in the country and close the network's office in Jerusalem. Is Israel aligning itself with the Arab states that severed diplomatic ties with Qatar? And is Al Jazeera biased or is the network being sacrificed as collateral damage in regional power politics?
