A General Who Is On Your Team

Note the point at which this General talks about the state having a monopoly on violence (Weber's definition).  This is not in any constitution of any state, but it is a guiding principle of those who command in the name of the state.  Ultimately, the answer is violence.  People applaud because his violence is on their side.  How about government without violence?
