Response to NO
And you like to mix metaphors, mix arguments, and justify your conclusions with fallacious arguments.
Zero violence is a wonderful ideal, there is no doubt. But it is not possible, and it is even unreasonable, to attempt it.
1) All aspects of human behaviors and emotions cannot be controlled, and it's a mistake to even try. To try is the ultimate form of fundamentalism - Muslim States, Nazi States, Communist-Dictator States, et. al. have all proven the point.
2) In a free society, with true freedom of expression and recognized rights for individuals, people will be upset, pissed off, and emotional about something someone else said/did. Because people cannot be controlled, there will always be those that resort to violence.
So... In a similar situation to unemployment, the "best number" is not zero, but a number that keeps the negative impact of the violence to a minimum.
You might want to study some aspects of chaos theory and some aspects of systems and recursion. The book "Godel, Escher, Bach" is a good one for the latter. For chaos stuff, just search the Internet.
