One may use violence in the following situations:
Against a man:
- In self-defense
- To aid in the defense of a weaker opponent
- To teach humility to an excessively rich, famous, or powerful man
Against a woman:
Only if she has melted down your Sade albums, or sold your first edition of Shogun to pay for a spa treatment.
Against a child or older person:
A gentleman almost never fights. But if he does enter battle, he finishes the job. Nothing works when done half-heartedly.
