Violence is not the solution to our problems

This past week many of us were glued to the television, Internet and radio as we followed the Boston Marathon bombing and the recent apprehension of two suspects.

These events have caused me to ask of myself how and why man desires to harm other humans.

Thomas Hobbes argued in "Leviathan" man in a state of nature was "solitary, poor, nasty, brutish and short."

There is no question about it, more than 300 years later, man still has a predilection for nastiness and a sick bent to harm his fellow man, by word and deed.
