Notes From The Edge Of Humanity

It never ceases to amaze me how cruel people can be to one another. There are many who harbor a wellspring of hatred almost as a point of pride, and, it seems, for every generation, they persist in their resentment of anyone who is different.

I'm not sure that psychologists have earned the respect many of them seek, but it certainly wouldn't do their profession much harm if they were to come up with a solution to what seems an intractable problem -- the problem of group violence and irrationalism that gnaws at the edges of civilized society.

Hooliganism is endemic in certain cultures, and perhaps some more than others. The question is, perhaps, why this is, and, even more, how such violence may be minimized. Why is it so much easier to hate than to love, and why is it that economic circumstances are seen to "justify" the darkness that lies in the hearts of all too many?

If you will read the following, you will see why, for all the globalism that many of us seek, there still remain many pockets of parochialism and ill-feeling, and no amount of blissful ignorance of such matters will make them go away.
