Violence is the use of force.
“There have been periods of history in which episodes of terrible violence occurred but for which the word violence was never used. ... Violence is shrouded in justifying myths that lend it moral legitimacy, and these myths for the most part kept people from recognizing the violence for what it was.”
Gil Bailie 
In June 2019, Fred Chan Ho-fai wrote opinion in the New York Times that "The protesters [in Hong Kong] should thoughtfully escalate nonviolence, maybe even resort to mild force, to push the government to the edge. "

|Bureaucracy||“are not themselves forms of stupidity so much as they are ways of organizing stupidity — of managing relationships that are already characterized by extremely unequal structures of imagination, which exist because of the existence of structural violence. This is why even if a bureaucracy is created for entirely benevolent reasons, it will still produce absurdities.”||David Graeber|
|Harry Ferguson||“Sadly, my advice today to any aspiring recruit who values the defence of human rights would be to stay away and do something better with their lives. The intelligence services are not what they were. Above all, they have forgotten the lessons that we learned during the struggle against Irish terrorism: that brutality and injustice are not the answer, they simply fuel the next generation of terrorists.”||Harry Ferguson|
|Government||“No matter its guiding “ism,” every government has granted itself the power to initiate violence against its citizens. Just because the ruling agglomerate asserts this privilege doesn’t render it philosophically valid. What it does is legitimate the initiation of violence for any and all causes — domestic and foreign — the government deems proper. Having violated the first principle of nonaggression, nothing can stop that philosophical default from trickling down to the subject population.”||Robert Gore||11 February 2017|
