A sociologist, on an interview on a local sports channel, made a really great point about violence in social settings. He said that such incidents affect every society and that believing otherwise was a misleading nationalistic load of hippo manure. He said there are four major types of 'release valves', depending on where this letting up of societal stress and steam occur. They can be divided thus:
type A- Violence at areas of public entertainment (sporting event violence, violence at concerts, violence tied to a particular style of entertainment, political rallies are a form of entertainment)
type B- Violence at areas of public conviction (violence tied to religious intolerance, religious violence directly professed against 'non-believers' of one's religion, violence justified on religious dogma)
type C- Violence at areas of public occupation (violence in public and private schools involving minors, violence tied to the workplace and issues at work, violence at legal proceedings)
type D- Violence at areas of public self-involvement (violence tied to belonging to a religious sect, cult, or other group that practice violence)
He says that every single society on the planet can be lumped into one of these major categories, and sometimes to more than one.
Reading the four 'types', which one jumps at you right away as the one your country fits in?
