Is deeply rooted in our strain brains, because our experience, in the past, has always been heavily influenced by violence. It was only after the Second World War that we worked to reduce the violence in us. Nevertheless, violence was always preserved as a solution for all possible processes. The so-called cold war is a disagreement between socialism and capitalism. Here, rather, the indirect, violence was carried out. A kind of violence that is not always recognizable at first glance, but which is no less dangerous. The coercion is one of these forms. Compulsion for sex is a big topic right now. But there is also the coercion to accept a certain life model. For example, if we want to ban advertising, the industry is threatening to cancel jobs, quite legally and obviously on television, that is violence too. The advertising itself is a form of violence. This is not just about a product or service, but about success and no success: "You have success in women if you use this perfume" for example. Of course that's not true. In addition, the smell of a human is a recognition feature. People smell if they could spend a life together. What they smell is their immune system. This natural smell is superimposed by perfume, it is hard to recognize now if they can stand together. Even with many other features such shifts take place. We adorn ourselves like Christmas trees to show to others: "Look, I am a pretty goose / a pretty gander". The failure of this measure is expressed in the high divorce rates and domestic violence. Because it is not the person in himself, which is loved, but a fake person, so it is a competition between Christmas trees, where the not so pretty, mighty or successful Christmas trees usually draw the short straw. The less successful in this competition are those who, when they are adults, successful or not, harass others sexually. This is just one example of how advertising leads to violence and conservation of violence. The other form of violence, the direct violence is present in many films and computer games.
In 75 percent of the American (and German) television program aired at a time when most children watch, the hero either kills or beats people. Typically, violence forms the "climax" of the program. Viewers who have been taught that the bad guys deserve to be punished, see such violent programs with satisfaction.

Violence is advocated by almost all governments as a safeguard of the respective lifestyle and is wanted.
So we conserve violence as a successful strategy to solve our problems in our minds. We breed our terrorists ourselves. Of course, these are confused people, often they are the stupid people. But there are, or were, with under, revolutionaries who fought for changes to the system. It is often a matter of success whether they are later called terrorists or revolutionaries. That's frankly crazy as well. Faith was one way to reduce violence, but unfortunately we are increasingly reducing Faith. Some Faith kinds have been violent, or some alleged religious leaders are still preaching violence today. Also a crazy stuff.
As long as we allow violence to be legitimately part of our coexistence, we will not be able to abolish violence. As long as I'm a hero if I kill as a soldier and I'm a be murderer if I kill as a private person, it is surreal. If I force a person because of there job to sex I'm a pig, but if I shortage the money on the market and in this way force people to prostitute, then I am a successful businessman... which is basically the same... as long as that is so, we will continue to have to live with all forms of violence.
We have to decide. Do we want the violence or not.
