Can you force someone to be good? Can violence produce good? Or does being good require the offering of a willing heart and a willing mind?

Its well know Avie that most people lie and they are very good at it,the main problem is that humans don't know when their being lied to.......the human brain is unable to read the signs of a liar, YET...theliq:cool:You can force someone to be good,but violence can never produce good,in my opinion.

Can you force someone to be good?
BE good? Probably not.

But under some cicumstances you can force them not to act badly.

Can violence produce good?
Sometimes, yes. When the good outcome demands that we overcome an obvious evil violently.


Or does being good require the offering of a willing heart and a willing mind?
Being anything requires a willing heart and mind.

you can not force one to be good but you can force behavior if the force is constant...violence can stop an evil act but can not produce good
