“A theory of war or a theory of revolution . . . can only deal with the justiﬁcation of violence because the justiﬁcation constitutes its political limitation; if, instead, it arrives at a gloriﬁcation or justiﬁcation of violence as such, it is no longer political but antipolitical” (Arendt, 1990: 19).
