Need for violence is acquired.
June 3, 2020
It is easy to experience love for others who share your perspective, but it is far more difficult to embrace another with loving thoughts when the behavior of that other is filled with seeming hatred or jealousy or suspicion or lack of knowledge. When you experience even more evidence of a lack of human accord, make an effort to understand what is happening.
The expression that “desperate people do desperate things” holds within it an ounce of truth. Human beings are not born into a world in order to become violent toward one another. The need for violence is acquired. It is learned and then refined. It is learned because there is a void that needs to be filled. Some individuals who carry out attacks on so many are actually filled with an emptiness that wishes to be filled with something purposeful. You cannot relate education level between perpetrators and victims, for education is not the defining element that separates the two. Experience can be.
