    Tell the Allies of WWII that violence is never the answer.
    .
    The Romans used to say “Si vis pacem, para bellum” If you want peace, prepare for war.
    .
    Both the Romans and the Allies forgot that idea.

    Wonder how Gandhi would have fared against the Nazis.

    Poorly. Gandhi recommended that the Jews use passive resistance against the Nazis. That would just make things easier when the opponent has no conscience.

    I remember a short story in a ’There will be War collection … but not a novel. Maybe it was by Turtledove and he expanded it into a novel.

    Got this one the other day on the web: there is no use running away from your problems – unless, of course, they are a pride of lions…

    Violence solves a LOT of problems, often permanently. You just want to make sure you are out of alternative options FIRST, because violence can’t be undone.

    Rome’s significant power spanned two millenia, from Romulus in 753 BCE through the gradual collapse of the Christian era. No single political or military philosophy applies to all that time.

    Parroting the political slogan of cowards earns you nothing but derision. Why don’t you go cuddle up with that rabid wolf? Or perhaps it should be disposed of with violence.
