3157 : Violence

The other thing (in addition to power) which fascinates me is - is this whole notion of violence, and how ingrained it is into our lives.

When we kill animals to eat, when we eat antibiotics, when we burn down farms, when we spray insecticide, when we do genocide, when we push people to boundaries, when we discriminate between humans, when we discriminate with other living beings, when we do the more obvious violent things like rape and murder......violence is so fundamental to our construct.

And it is normalized. We normalize how we treat animals, other humans, and plants. We are ok with known forms of violence. 

Every single thing/activity I touch is full of violence. Power and violence are two fundamental constructs on the base of which we have built our modern lives.
