    I think it is from Peter Gelderloose and shows how pacifism is ineffective and helps state(system) to function without any challenge from people.
    I have not read it all, but now i think i will get back to the book and study it more closely

    The problem with violence is that it's anti-anarchist.

    Violence is a tool of domination. No matter what political goals you espouse, using force to make people do what you want is tyranny. If you use violence to overthrow the state, all you've done is take it's place as the new state. You can't force people to live in anarchy, anymore than you can beat a corpse to life. You have to educate and convince people that anarchy is the better option.
