Force or persuasion

Now the intercourse between individuals and between social groups
takes one of two forms, force or persuasion. Commerce is the 
great example of intercourse by way of persuasion. War, slavery, 
and governmental compulsion exemplify the reign of force.
Alfred North Whitehead, _Adventures of Ideas_, 1933
