Does Killing Stop Killing?

Does killing stop killing?

Does hate stop hate?

Does perpetuating violence stop the cycle of violence?

Can loving stop love?

Can laughing stop joy?

Can breathing stop breathing?

Does killing stop killing? A purely hypothetical question I surmise, but an interesting one to answer nonetheless.

Like any meaningful question, the answer is it depends. No simple yes or no here. The devastation that the atomic bombs wrought on Japan certainly turned many in that nation into pacifists. Since the end of World War II, we have certainly not seen any more Japanese aggression towards her Asian neighbors. So, does killing stop killing? It could.

not that this a directly answer to your question, but martin luther king, jr. once said:
"Through violence you may murder a murderer, but you can't murder murder...
Through violence you may murder a hater, but you can't murder hate.
Darkness cannot put out darkness. Only light can do that…."

You are correct. Whiile you can execute a murderer, executions do not prevent future murders from occurring. But, that doesn't mean executions are ineffective. After all, just because the medicine does not cure the entire spectrum of ills, it does not mean that the medicine is ineffective.

Capital punishment is part of the solution. Prisons are part of the solution. Jails are part of the solution. Education is part of the solution. Counseling is part of the solution. Drug abuse treatment is part of the solution. All of them have a role in the arsenal against murder.

"Darkness cannot put out darkness. Only light can do that..." That's a nice saying, but one totally devoid of any practical meaning because it oversimplifies the complexities of human relationships. If there was a magical light switch out there where we can flip on to end all murder, we would certainly have done it by now.
