I would tend to agree. IMHO, agression/violence comes from the fear and pain of thinking its all about you and trying to control everything so it comes out the way you want it to.
While we can have understanding and compassion for the origin of the pain, we still must hold people responsibile and accountable for the expression and consequences of it.
While ideas may not be solid, their expression and impact can be.
Good article. Compliments and appreciation.
That is a great quote. And who among us is not a hurt person? This is why something like aikido is so essential. It has the potential to help us identify our own hurts, our manifold vulnerabilities.

Once this is so, it becomes possible to "hurt less."
