, a force is any influence that causes an object
to undergo a change in speed, a change in direction, or a change in shape. In other words, a force is that which can cause an object with mass
to change its velocity
(which includes to begin moving from a state of rest), i.e., to accelerate, or which can cause a flexible object to deform. Force can also be described by intuitive concepts such as a push or pull.

The use of force alone is but temporary. It may subdue for a moment; but it does not remove the necessity of subduing again; and a nation is not governed, which is perpetually to be conquered.

A riot is at the bottom the language of the unheard.
Let there be no violence in religion.
