So does it mean that education or learning is also violence?..


Learning is not violent, but fair part of education system is.

Exploratory learning is natural and doesn’t require to subject a student to specific frames.

However forcing child to go to school, forcing child to choose a speciality is all violent.

Less violent approach would be to somehow “sell” the idea to the child. But here we end up in manipulation territory which is better but still not ideal.

I guess the main idea of viewing “violence as reduction of choices” is an exercise to identify all encompassing violence around us i.e. not taking it as a inherent status quo, even tho if it kinda is

Human society and cultural news, studies, and other things of that nature. From linguistics to philosophy to religion to anthropology, if it’s an academic discipline you can most likely put it here.
