So are you saying you prefer a society in which the biggest guy with the swiftest kick or the biggest gun wins? Forget the mind or civility or discussion. Forget diversity, respect, rule of law.

I think history demonstrates that non-violent means is the most productive way of winning equality--examples, MLK and South Africa Aparthoid.  Every generation has to battle for freedom over and over again.  Now we are struggling with GLBT issues---in the US they are slowly wending their way through the courts on several fronts as well as DADT in the legislative process. That is just as we speak.

just wanted to add here a short radio show that spoke to issues of stress and how the mind plays a major role in how we deal with stress

anyway they made the point of how according to their study - a distinct corrolation exists that suggests that discriminators that effect us at either school or in our childhood [ie: homophobia [my emphasis]] - is what lays the ground work for our adult capacity to deal with normal stressors or wellbeing later in life.

Good to have a study back up what I've experienced first hand.

Among the insults and injuries I sustained was a depressed skull fracture.
