It can be proven, is your ethnicity violent?

    Very interesting stuff here..



    I read this article ages ago and recently searched for it.



    Left handed people are controlled by an evil force? Answer to that question is true to some extent. The higher percentage of left hand people in a society the more violent genes or people they are.

    The west has 10% and a country in Africa Burkina Faso only has 3.4%.

    Alexander the Great was left hander. Opps.

    This stuff isn't proven, its just a theory and what I've highlighted has instantly been disproved with my own children. The one child that is left handed had the heaviest birth weight and is the tallest and strongest of the children and she is the gentlest and most loving
    Mankind has tried to weed out left handed people by trying to make them utilise the right hand.
    Let's face it we don't like anyone slightly different to ourselves!
    I also wouldn't classify as most violent as those who possess the most weapons, I would classify violent as those who go fly into a temper at the slightest thing.

    Violence is a good thing.
    Should we wipe out those violent cultures?

    Yes, yes.
    To begin with I would wipe out all who opposed me or was in the way for the kind of world I would like.

    Like those privive religious or reactionary cultures.
    The muslims that threat to bomb my country.
    And USA becouse basically USA is a problem for Europe.
    I want everything I fear to die.

    To me anger just means that I want something. So I am angry all the time becouse I never like refusals.

    But then I would be member of a violent culture.

    Violence is great.

    Anger and Violence is a path to dark side :D. Not that a Satanists would care as much, considering he uses Sith philosophy to get what he wants:p.

    Anyways in my honest opinion I think violence is vital to human society, but needs to be exercised in a good way. Violence and sex are not bad as long as you do not force it upon others. Rape and Murder are deadly aspects of sex and violence, but we need to look beyond that. If you have a lot of aggression and want to use it upon someone, find someone and ask them to fight with you for fun;). I know that may sound very odd, and many people think that no one would accepts such a thing but the truth is many men (and some women) do like to fight for fun. I surelly do;). Or instead of risking getting hurt in a unorganized fight, join a combat sport such as boxing, wrestling, or MMA. The bottom line is that violence (like sex) can be an okay pleasure as long as we do not force upon others.

    Of course self defense is another reason to use violence.

    that sounds like something i would like to join. wipe out all who oppose me.
    so do you have a favorite kind of violence?

    that anger you mention sounds more like greed.
    do you think greed & violence go together?
    how does someone become angry all the time?

    I'm a Scotsman. A violent barbarian that lifts his 'skirt', bends over and flashes you his dirty arse before charging at you with a mighty broadsword to the whailing of some screeching sheeps stomach. Or am I?
