Karl R. Popper’s very respectable theory argues that civilization tends to limit the use of violence and opposes a state of chaos, madness, barbarism, and war. Empirically, this philosophical theory can be supported by at least (though not exclusively) a triad of arguments, which confirm that indeed law tends to curb the use of violence, even though it is not based exclusively on the force (and violence) of the sanction: (i) a legal philosophical argument, i.e. the theory of "international regimes"; (ii) a sociological one, i.e. the theory of social networks such as "Small-World Networks"; and (iii) a mathematical one, i.e. the theory of deterministic chaos applied to the phenomenon of sanction (also definable as coercive force, deterrence or even "just war").
