I just stumbled upon this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4LuPCAh9FCc
It is the best thing I heard for a long while. I has just been a great insight for me personally but I also think it has two implications which this forum might be interested in apart from the benefits of non violent language itself.
Often fights start of on the forum because of two things (this is just my theory, might be wrong). Because people judge others and because people interpret the statements of others beyond what can objectively be said about those statements. It then gets worse if both parties take part in this two sided process.
Also there is a great parallel between Daniel's non violent / non state vision of society (I don't know enough about it, so I would have to interpret it too much to have an opinion about it
). But what I know I can say is that the objective great.
For me the theory underlying the video implies two things:
(1) This non violent society vision can only work if not only institutions but also minds/culture/language changes.
(2) There is a possibility to practice the non violent society everyday (on the forum, with other communities, with the media).
Just thought this (the video) had a very powerful message. I have to watch the rest myself though...
