This is response to an interesting idea brought up by Berd (and quickly backpedaled away from) in the Triway vandalism thread. He suggested that Larida Passage would itself constitute an act of vandalism, and that the rezone proposal represents an act of violence against the public process.
Now, as I said on that thread, I'm of the view that property destruction is NOT 'violence' in the same way that harming a living creature is. But if people are going to use words broadly like that, then the only logical conclusion is that Berd is absolutely right.
Vandalism: willful destruction or defacement of any object of beauty or value
Violence: injury done to that which is entitled to respect, reverence, or observance
Do I need to spell this out?
