The Problem with the Internet is the Problem with Writing

If you’re being victimized by violence and I walk up to you and say to you “don’t fight back –never fight evil being done to you” the speciousness will be immediately apparent. You’ll say with urgency then what do I do now? You will get frustrated with me and may even poke and punch me to see how I respond. My statements may change in response to your poking and frustration.

But if I write my statement on paper or stone my statement becomes enigmatic or seductive. It tricks the reader into thinking its part of the world and may even start a sect of pacifists.
