Moondance and “non-violent conflict”

November 28, 2007

The Moondance International Film Festival http://www.moondancefilmfestival.com/01-Home.html  was just held – I had a friend in it so I care – but when I went to the website to check it out, I saw this link…

 which promotes its “non-violent confict resolution in the arts & film”.  While I can honor the sentiment, I feel that it’s wrongheaded to push the idea that all conflicts might be resolvable without the use of force. A couple of concealed handguns in the hands of the teachers (or even students!) might have saved some lives that day in Columbine…and I never get tired of saying that.
