Apparently incorrect political correctness.

You should had told the buddhist monks I have seen fighting that you knew of a better solution.

When there is no alternative fights will be to come to peace.

And you guys could try to leave the model you are thinking of for a moment.
You are probably thinking of cases like ethnical conflicts where your claims would be true, because a defeated ethnic group would stay in condition and defend itself.

This is a different case from taking the power away from mafia structures. People are way mightier than any mafia.

Seems like you merely can´t think without given conditions, while not picturing a situation superficially desperately different from today.


PS: Just re-read your post. Think to understand it better now. Seems you are relating to direct time / immediate condition, which is not being discussed however. No question that revolting people wouldn´t be in peace with establishment they overthrow.
