Violence Can Be a Symptom of a Bigger Underlying Problem

Whether it be an individual or a group, frustrations and unmet expectations can build up over time until they overflow or explode, especially when people don’t feel they have the power to change things.

The violence that sometimes gets released, while inexcusable and counterproductive, is actually a symptom of something that has been building for some time. Whether it be lone gunmen, terrorist acts or riots, these eruptions of violence did not come out of nowhere.

If we want to reduce and prevent these violent acts, we must take actions to solve personal and societal problems before they ignite and explode into something much bigger than it needs to be.

The best way to defuse a bomb is to make sure there is no compelling reason to build one in the first place.
