Thank you for responding.
Violence is certainly a very bad thing to encounter and if Self defense was the only way out I am sure it is justified. Agree that with a long Police career your opinion about violent behavior is supported by your experience.
In my paper life atom=Soul as is understood generally. This is the explanation about the structure, parts and functions of the soul.You can validate each feature within yourself.And then you can validate the existence of the soul and its characteristics in any other Human being.
If that is in order then a baby that is born which is a soul that wants to enjoy bliss can never take to violence unless the teachings and the society encourages the same. I would love to learn from your experience if someone turned violent without having fear or some trauma inflicted on him.
I would love to get on a call or skype with you in case you want to discuss the new finding about Soul and help me spread the same for benefit of mankind.
There is a very interesting article on violence and human acts by Umair
A Question of Evil .https://umairhaque.com/a-question-of-evil-badfd2ba0a47
He explains how the concept of good people and bad people has worked in history and has been the root cause of genocide.
Look forward to more interesting posts from you:)
