Beware of Violence

We are torn between verbiage and violence. Our intelligence tells us to resolve
disputes patiently and peacefully. But our anger tells us to end disputes fast
and
forcefully. How can we resolve this dichotomy? We must own up to our
tendency
to anger and violence, and learn to express this tendency verbally, safely, and
humanely.
