Alt Right Violence
When ANTIFA members physically attack alt-right NAZIs, it raises a question about tolerance and violence.
The answer is simple: NAZI intolerance is fundamentally evil and it must be resisted whenever it appears.
[See below the PARADOX OF TOLERANCE, Karl Popper in 1945; he suggested that we cannot tolerate intolerance among us.]
We have history of what happens when NAZIs win. It is not acceptable.
The Bible is clear: Evil is violence and must be resisted.
Then ANTIFA - Go forth and resist evil when it appears. Do not enjoy the violence, it is just a means to the end of defeating evil. Break their spirit but not their bones or their skin. Send NAZI evil back to the darkness.
Proverbs 13:2 'From the fruit of a man's mouth he enjoys good, But the desire of the treacherous is violence.'
Ezekiel 7:23. 'Make the chain, for the land is full of bloody crimes and the city is full of violence.'
Micah 2:1-2. 'Woe to those who scheme iniquity, Who work out evil on their beds! When morning comes, they do it, For it is in the power of their hands. They covet fields and then seize them, And houses, and take them away They rob a man and his house, A man and his inheritance.'
PARADOX OF TOLERANCE,
The paradox of tolerance, first described by Karl Popper in 1945, is a decision theory paradox. The paradox states that if a society is tolerant without limit, their ability to be tolerant will eventually be seized or destroyed by the intolerant. Popper came to the seemingly paradoxical conclusion that in order to maintain a tolerant society, the society must be intolerant of intolerance.
