Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt

One must remember that in choosing the lesser of two evils, one still chooses evil.

Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt

The practice of violence, like all action, changes the world, but the most probable change is to a more violent world.

Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt

Power and violence are opposites; where the one rules absolutely, the other is absent… It is not correct to think of the opposite of violence as nonviolence; to speak of nonviolent power is actually redundant. Violence can destroy power; it is utterly incapable of creating it.

Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt

To substitute violence for power can bring victory, but the price is very high, for it is not only paid by the vanquished, it is also paid by the victor in terms of his own power.

Hannah Arendt

Hannah Arendt

Violence, we must remember, does not depend on numbers or opinions, but on implements... Those who oppose violence with mere power will soon find that they are confronted not by men but by men’s artifacts, whose inhumanity and destructive effectiveness increase in proportion to the distance separating the opponents. Violence can always destroy power; out of the barrel of a gun grows the most effective command, resulting in the most instant and perfect obedience. What never can grow out of it is power.
