Is violence ever justified? What are the reasons it could be justified? Self defense? Defending family? Bullying? War? Religion? Communism?

From huge conflicts to small acts of violence, is any of it justified?

Please explain your reasoning.

I'm with The Inq. I would use violence in defense of myself, or anyone else.
The hour has already come for you to wake up from your slumber, because our salvation is nearer now than when we first believed. Romans 13:11

And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved. Matthew 10:22

Wake up, oh sleeper, and rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you

If someone is attacking you, and you stab them in the face....stabbing someone in the face is still a violent act.

But, I see what you mean, so besides self defense, is it justified?

Re: IS VIOLENCE EVER JUSTIFIED?
Violence is obviously justified in self defense. Common law allows us to defend ourselves against assault. Also possibly as a punishment or deterrent to criminal behaviour, but not as justifiable as a direct use of violence to prevent being murdered or raped for example.

There is not only always a way to avoid violence -- but a way to do so -- that prevents it: from happening again and/or haunts the belligerent who started the escalation.

Re: IS VIOLENCE EVER JUSTIFIED?
It is justified sometimes. An example would be if a family member was a drug addict and they overdosed and their drug dealer shows up at the hospital.

You would start swinging ASAP! And it would be you attacking that person, so not self defense.

Also violence is justified in sports where it is permitted and in the manner prescribed and agreed to by participants in such events as boxing matches.

A better question is when is violence by government justified?

Since everything it does is based on violence, force, the threat of force and actual violent force.

Individuals have always had the right to defend lives and property from aggression by appropriate force.
