Violence


No matter where, who and against whom. And whether it is labeled as domestic violence, organised or institutionalised crime, war or terrorism, violence remains violence. And no matter how hard a person tries to justify such an act by claiming to do it in the name of religion, nation, or even justice and love, acts of violence are a manifestation of the threatened ego that triggers mental pain, fear, anger or hatred in a person. There is nothing noble in the act of violence, and although the ego tries to convince the perpetrator of his power, such behaviour shows the opposite – a weakness and inability to control conditioned mind and emotions.
