Violence Spreads Like an Infectious Disease
Throughout the history of the world violence has wiped millions of people off the face of the earth just like some of the many diseases or plagues
such as small pox, tuberculosis, AIDS, cancer, and diabetes.
If one could go back to the beginning of civilization you can clearly see that violence has been around in one form or another. From Ancient Rome to
the Iraq War, the toll of violence continues to remind all humans of how sick people can be at times. Some people would argue that violence is
necessary in order to control a country or control the people.
However, violence only begets more violence and there are no real winners in the world of violence. Several major cities across the world suffer from
high levels of violence and it appears that violence can breakout at anytime or place just like a rash of violence. Countries like Mexico and Brazil
and cities like Kingston, Jamaica and Chicago, Ill. suffer from high levels of violence every year.
Looking back on how some people have become desensitized to the suffering of other people there is no other category to place violent behavior into
other than a public health issue. The atrocities that occurred in Germany during the Holocaust, Genocide in Rwanda, and the Trans Atlantic Slave Trade
would make one think that violence is definitely a sickness.
To brutalize, kill, rape, experiment, strip people of their culture, and lynch people are all signs of sick behavior. Homicides occur all the time and
most people feel like it's the norm and there is nothing that can be done about reducing homicide rates.
I,for one,could never imagine this mindset.
It is a sickness and a cause for concern demanding we,the people need to direct our attention to this problem to solve.
