Frustration, death of friends and family, religious zealism, racism, nationalism, lack of resources, feeling of intimidation, international sanctions, superiority complex...

The list could go on for pages. What are you trying to say?

Don't forget greed, envy, lust, hate etc.

"for the good of society" is my personal favorite.

God is the #1 cause of violence. I asked Dad and he told me this was true.

Yup, organized religion produces a lot of ignorent people who are willing to kill and die for what they are told to believe in.

If you look at people who are in prison for murder, religion likely had absolutely no role in what they did. Of the murderers who are in prison who are religious, it's almost always to reconcile that they killed someone.

Just today that guy pleaded guilty for murder after he turned himself in awhile ago after seeing the Passion of the Christ.

It's too easy to just blame religion.

Frustration is #1 I think. When people think they are powerless, they will try and use any means possible to achieve something.

IMO, I think people and all animals alike are caused to act out violently through instinct.

"Hey, you took my fudge round!", boy one exclaims.
Boy one reacts in a typical 6 year old sharing rage, and slaps his friend as hard as possible.

"You cheated on me!"
typical mainstrean/monogamous citizens would most likely reply:
"Im going to kick her ass"

Violence is physical exercise and releases adrenaline.

Violence is drugs, sex, and conversation. It is just another release.

To watch people get hurt, shot, play rough in a sport, or to actually be doing these things gets people off.

Especially in America.


--------------------
A plethora of music aspirations control my temptations of future revelations beyond "now". The percussion, and the heart beat of my love and devotion. The rhythm goes beyond, prying into the third eye, releasing the creativity held so far inside. The melodicies, through the out of tune pianos and broken classical guitars...there lies a beauty. A beauty as prevelent as the fire inside. To release these energies is pure ecstacy, to deveop these gifts is sacred. The vocality, so pure as can be, shying away from herself, lies within me. For the underlying serenitity, this is what I live for. I plea for harmony, and nothing more. Music equals love. Creation of love leads to the procreativity of the World, and it's spirals and puddles prevailing.
