For an informative post. I have done very little reading on Locke himself (his personality etc) to know what he personally said about violence. I assume by giving us a way to get out of the contract of government (revolution) that he accepted violence as a solution. Regardless I have much to read, I always have much to read, but I will try to get more information. In my personal opinion though, I still consider it a possible solution, however it isn't the most ideal solution.
