It is reassuring to think that we can make clear-cut distinctions, especially where violence is concerned. It is reassuring because we like to believe we can clearly and unequivocally distinguish violence from nonviolence, destruction from construction, killing from vivifying, death from life. It is reassuring not least of all because such clear-cut distinctions seem to give us a hold on whatever is being distinguished while keeping us at a safe distance from it.
