    Ok people, this may be the trillionth time a thread of this nature has appeared, but then, there really isn't anything new under the sun,
    so here goes.
    I beleive that the concept of living in a peacefull world is good.
    but it's just that, a concept, there for we(martial artists) train for the inevitability of violence in this world.
    Now does this sound correct to any one else or am I just living in a padded room with rainbows and bunnies?

    the world you live in is just a sugar coated toping. beneath it is another world. The real world. and to survive there you must learn to pull the trigger!!!-Blade

    A peaceful world would indeed be great. I think that we have a real good chance of achieving at the rate we're going - I don't know much about this, but I've heared that 10 or 20 decent nukes will get us there.
    You say what about my rice?

    Peace would not last. Unless games existed there would be real violence...

    "Holodecks" or a DNI "matrix stuff" would be big business...

    Small wonder why combat sports are so liked now?

    The desire to achieve more than your fellow man will always be an innate aspect of the human psyche. Thus, humanity will always have conflict, and consequently, some will resort to violence.

    Sad, but true, and all you can do is be stronger than anyone trying to attack you... be it physically, financially, or mentally.

    well, the original idea I had when posting this was along the lines of this,
    Is having a mentality of peace while training for the possability of facing violence an exceptable mentality? How ever when I actually posted it it came out wrong. but thanks for the input.

    C'mon. How old are you, man?


    It's what you ***do*** that reflects whether or not your mentality works. Discussing it in these forums will not help you.

    And if you plan on flaming me based on my answer, you can say what you want, I don't give a **** any more. It's just pointless words on a screen.
