@failures art,
if you and 2 other people were in a rm and you killed one of those 2 people and you and the other person both agree with the reasons for which you killed the guy then it would be justified.. in that situation


2/3 of the population of the rm found the act justifiable

and as for the dead guy...he must have been seen as some kind of threat

@failures art,
Depends on if the justification takes place before or after the violent act.

Really; violence demands redefinition...It is more of a state of mind or a character trait than an act, and even slow motion actions like starving some one to death when it results from intent, or total disregard for consequences is violent... It is from our death wish that all violence against nature and humanity flows... The moment we justify ourselves we justify all the death and injury our lives demand... The act is not more violent than the person conceiving of it... We first consider it, and if we take pleasure from the thought of it, we follow through...
