I can be violent. Anybody can. Most of us keep it inside us and blow their gaff suddenly for no reason anybody can work out. Some violence is necessary to ease the pressure. My violence is limited, some involve others and before long the population gets thinned out here, there and everywhere. That's called war. It's institutionalL "You're inferior, we're going to prove it", or "We were here first, s*d off back where you came from!"
There's another kind of violence that's institutional, it's called the VAT man,
"You owe us, cough up or we'll send in the boys in black".
And then there's another kind,
"If you want us to be your friends, buy the numbers". That's a protection racket. Does it sound any different to this:
"If you vote for me, I'll make sure your wallet will stay in your pocket".
