Description

this is the "violent revolution is a just response to political oppression", except under extremely specific modern circumstances.

Just/Moral: The correct/right decision, ethically speaking. Morally correct (similar to Justice: righteousness, equitableness, or moral rightness)

Setup: Assume a world where all of Trump's accusations on the elections were correct for the 2020 US presidency, and that congress did nothing to fix the election. In this world, Violent Protest (storming the capitol) is a just action.

I thought the only violence was the woman who got shot by state officials.

It really depends on the severity of the "rigging" and who was doing it

are you also Pro on this? Most of your arguments don't work (as the oppression is not violent), but some of them still stand.
