Violence is the use of force or power. According to the World Health Organization, it is divided into three broad categories: self-directed violence, interpersonal violence, and collective violence. The question of why violence is inflicted upon oneself or someone else is open to question. Could we categorize all violence as bad, or is some violence necessary to prevent people from committing punishable crimes?
Yes, violence is always wrong
The idealistic approach to ethics of violence is that no matter its reason, it can never be justified, which is why it is always wrong.
Interpersonal and community violence is always wrong
Interpersonal violence refers to threatening or abusive behaviors from family members and partners, including child maltreatment, resulting in physical or psychological harm.
The physical and psychological impact of violence can last for years if untreated. Although many individuals are hospitalized because of violence inflicted on them, or their exposure to it from any degree, many victims still find it difficult to recover from their trauma.
Violence is an inherent human behavior like joy and excitement. It cannot be avoided, but it should be numbed down in situations that require violence. It is necessary for introducing justice laws to prevent people from committing unjust harm in fear of the violence that might be inflicted on them.
Humans are inherently violent
Human violence is not a contemporary concept, but it is deeply rooted in our ancient history. It has shaped our physical characteristics as well as our brain mechanisms.
Although violence is a complex concept, it is sometimes understood to be a threat that can ensure peace for years. The looming dangers of war have allowed countries to calmly deal with conflict and find resolutions that move away from violence.
