Are ideas more powerful than physical violence (like wars)???

To get started:

Defending the pen: Ideas can influence our actions, it controls what we do.
Defending the sword: Without violence, many countries wouldn't be independant countries now.

Well, which one and why?


just to be clear, i don't actually literally mean a real pen vs. a real sword..read the first line would ya? :)

It's true and it's false at the time. As long as there are human beings, disagreement is going to spring. Some things can be won over using intellect but other things have to be stopped by force.

its both true and false. if someone attacked you with a sword your screwed if you only have a pen, but if you have a pen then you can stop the need for the sword in the first place

If you're writing an essay I don't think a sword would be of much use, except for threatening your teacher into giving you full marks.

what would you do with a pen in a fight? jab it into their eye?

In Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, a character squirts a Nazi in the eye with ink from his fountain pen even though the Nazi had a gun pointed at him.
