If we look at the history of the world, we will find that peace and harmony integrated human civilization, on the other hand wars and crimes not only destroyed the peace but brought in-comfort among masses. As seeds of banana will grow only banana tree not mango; similarly violence in a region and a country will bring chaos and disturbance. Moreover, start of war and violence is due to end of arguments and dialogue. As soon as dialogue ends, violence prevails immediately. However, there are several causes of eruption of violence besides absence of talk. In other words when some one is not able to compete professionally and ethically then he takes help of unlawful activities. Likely one is incompetent to argue ones point of view. This is start of violence, so it is rightly said that Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent. The core of solution is the tolerance as tolerance is need of hour.

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.
Isaac Asimov

Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent meaning

The quote means that when some one do not have supportive arguments for their idea and plan then he leads to implement their very ideas and plans through force.

Violence is the last resort of the incompetent

Causes of violence

One of the greatest unrest and unhappiness among masses is attitude and personal ill of individuals. When ever attitude of an individual deteriorate in a family life the it shakes healthy life of family. Similarly, as a whole when a society’s attitude goes bad then there is nothing except chaos and violence. Since, society is beautiful segment of all races and creeds. And when a particular segment of society donot accept other segment then violence arise.   

Among the society greed for power, social and economic differences and loose social bonds also generate violence. Since, society is on drive with the help of all its entities;  whenever, there is rise of a conflict, and if the conflicts’ solution mechanism is weaker then violence will grow with immediate effect. We see that those societies are prosperous and growing that have strong conflict resolution system and tolerance.   

In addition to this, races and culture are reasons of enmity in some areas of the world. Besides, religion is main cause of conflict and violence in this contemporary world.

Effects of violence

As the violence at home destroys its building and peace; in the same manner violence destroys peace and prosperity of a society, nation and a country. If causes of violence are not settled, then there will be more violence and unrest. On the other hand children and women are affected a lot; meanwhile violence continues at the cost of men’s life.  

How to end violence

There must be an effective conflict resolution system. All the entities in a society must obey and act on the verdict of solution system for violence. Tolerance and acceptance of views of others is another remedy to curb violence. Moreover, one should support the lawful and legal entity for its rights. Build healthy relationship and make strong bonds with others. Healthy relationship brings peace and tolerance in the society.  Committees and welfare societies at community level can settle many issues. 

At government level equal distribution of resources, provision of justice, employment and opportunities for all genders can divert the reasons of conflict.

Violence doesn’t end violence but it breeds more violence.
