Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 20, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta REFLECTIONS ON VIOLENCE It's striding across wor A commentary By ANTHONY LEWIS New York Times Service Violence, less and less cm- barassed by tho limits im- posed by centuries of lawful- ness, is brazenly and victor- iously striding across tho whole world. world is being inun- dated by the brazen conviction that power can do anything, justice nothing." A1 e k s a n d r Solzhenilsyn's words, in his undelivered Nobel Prize lecture, cxpVcsscd the anxiety of civilized beings ev- erywhere. A day hardly pass- es, wo feel, without some new threat to the ordered peace that makes life bearable. We sense a society at risk from terror- ists, hijackers, assassins teachers beyond the familiar restraints of reason and human- ity. But Solzhenitsyn was not talking only of the violence of antisocial fanatics. He lias him- self been a victim of something Dignitaries at film festival STRATFORD, Out. (CP) The eighth Stratford interna- tional film festival began week of non competitive show- ings with the North American premiere of the recently re- leased British movie, Antony and Cleopatra. Heading dignitaries attending tho event .were Charlton Hes- ton, the film's star and direc tor, and Ontario Premier Wit liam both minglec with invited guests on the stage of the Avon Theatre followinf the showing. It was the first lime a sounc film had been made of the Shakespearean version of one of history's most notable lov< affairs, although there had been several films dealing with the Antony Cleopatra story, the most recent being tbe lavis] Cleopatra which starred Rtch ard Burton and Elizabeth Tay lor as the tragic lovers. Hilde gard Neil plays the Egypliai femmo fatale in Mr. Heston' film. Prior to the showing, Mr Heston told tho audience lha his first professional perform ance was as a supporting play er in a touring stage productio of Shakespeare's Antony a n Cleopatra which had been pn seated at the Royal Alexandr theatre in Toronto. The festival will conclud Saturday night with anothe North American premiere, Th Harder They Come, the iiw feature film made in Jamaica ust as dangerous: the violence [is a heavy demand, in an age 1 tlio state. It is indeed more nisler, because more corrupt- g- One of the most terrible facts this age is the evidence that e are becoming more tolerant official violence. There are gns of that deadly social ill- ess right across tbe developed orld. A current example, an espec- ally painful one, is provided y Ihe report of the official ommission on the Atlica Pris- n rebellion and its suppression year ago. The report makes lear beyond argument (hat aw enforcement officers fired uudreds of rounds without varning that day, at men who ad no guns. It makes clear he heavy responsibility of Gov. kelson A. Rockefeller in the massacre that resulted. It makes clear that official ac- ounls ol Ihe events were lies. 5MENINEPT MEN In a society that gave due to personal courage and honor in its leaders, Rockefeller vould have returned to private ifc; those who wantonly caused death in tbe name of the state vould be called to legal ac- count. What is happening in act? The commission of emin- ent men who made the Attica report is itself being investtga- ;ed by a prosecutor. It is most .mlikely that any official will ever face legal action, or even public shame. Those who wanl :he responsibility for that day al Atlica brought home will have .0 look to some hither power ;han the conscience of the state of New York. Another, difficult example lies in Israel's reprisals for the savagery of Arab terrorists a1 Munich. The declared aim xvas to hit guerrilla camps. Accounts by reporters after the first air raids indicated that Israeli in telligence cannot be perfcc either: The bomb hit at leasl some places where there were no guerrillas, and they killed women and children. The sweep into Lebanon by Israeli ground forces may inevitably have claimed civilian victims, too. The official argument is al ways that such action was ne- cessary to counter grave risks to society. Undoubtedly the pro- vocation at Attica as after Mu nich was extreme. No commen tator, afler the fact, should un derestimate the strain on those forced to decide how to save a group of hostages. No on should mistake determination o Jews in Israel not to let them selves be destroyed in this gen oration. But can it really hel to take action that almost In evilably will kill the innocen along with the guilty? Solzhenitsyn, after all, ask us to meet violence not wit violence but with justice. Th, frustration and terror, but it the price of civilization. For 12 state to do otherwise to EC its great power wantonly r outside the law is to put whole idea of ordered lib- rty at risk. ELEVANT What makes all this so rele- ant and so worrying for Am- ricans is the indication that have become deadened to flicial violence. We have been irough Ihe period of the Mark tudds and the Rap Browns, iose who preached that force ,'as a legitimate weapon gainst an unfair anc have been through police lots. We are so desensitized hat an Attica or a Kent stale 0 longer seems to tough the moral nerve of America. Or, most of all, Vietnam. The 01 respondents there keep tell ng us about the violence being lone by the United States in he name of freedom as a ecent example tbe saturation 3-52 bombing of densely popu aled areas in the southern delta. But is anyone listening? low many Americans can make the mental leap of Ima [ining hundreds of bombs fall from unseen planes on vil ages in Kansas or Rhode Is and? How many reckon the moral cost that will have to be paid for that violence? And how can -those who do underslanc o on caring, after all the year: of fruitless protest? A middle-aged Virginia house- wife "I have no hope I expect lo die while the wa continues. But that does not dis courage me about making ai :ffort. To do otherwise wouli be to die in life, and that is wha lament in others." Introducing THE STROLLE!
