    ...I am thinking perhaps we are trying to work to change this:

    Whether you like it or not, society is presently organized to favor the assertive.  
    And, regarding this:
    He was taught that the first rule of fighting was to avoid it whenever possible. The second rule was that when a non-violent solution was no longer possible, and only if your personal safety was threatened, then you could fight, and fight to make the result so punishing and so swift that no one would ever mess with you again.  
    I like the first rule.  I'm not so sure the second rule is what Jesus or Buddha or Martin Luther King Jr would recommend. (I'm not really religious, but I think they had some good things to say on this subject.)

    As before, love and peace and to you
