Presented by Adrian Tillery

“What motivates violence?

Why do compassionate people kill others, or themselves?

Most acts of violence are actually committed by people that feel they are doing the right thing.  What role does violence have in regulating our social relationships/contracts?

When speaking of violence, the issue is not black and white, but grey.  I want to explore violence in our history, in our society, and in our lives.
