Wouldn't it be nice if people would settle things like back in the stone age? You know, kicking each other's asses with fists, sticks and bats?
There is good, sound philosophy in what you say. When everyone around you is able to kick your ass, or beat you to death with a club, how do you treat them? Respectfully. And how do you get something from them? Through reason, logic, and persuasion. Like they say... "An armed society is a polite society."
