Violence is the gut reaction to perceived loss of power and control and a desperate attempt to re-assert that control. I agree witht the Archbishop that at the very root of violence is indeed fear. As a society we have been fed a lie that violence is the domain of those who have the strength of will to harm another. What hogwash. True strength of will and character is found in the one who can, after being slapped on one side of his face, turn the other side to his attacker to be struck as well. Overcoming one's fear is far more admirable than forming a fist and causing others violent pain.
