Corn. Verhoeven Violence (4)

Reading: Tegen het geweld, (Against violence) 1976 Utrecht.

Part III Liquidatie van de moed (Destruction of Courage) p.51

The language of the courage comes into being from the ideology of activity. The ideology of activity does exclude  undergoing. Courage, the doctrine of the person who always in all circumstances prefers perseverance to undergoing, putting personal violence against the violence of the world.

The language of courage justifies courage as ethical. The glorification of courage needs destruction.
Peace is not a military problem, the real hero of peace is not the courageous knight but the civil servant.
