Why Do People Like Violence - An Answer from Alan Turing


"Do you know why people like violence? It is because it feels good. Humans find violence deeply satisfying. But remove the satisfaction, and the act becomes... hollow."
Benedict Cumberbatch who plays Alan Turing in the movie The Imitation Game says this line when the young mathematician in his group asks him to explain Hitler's actions.
Unfortunately, Turing's observation is just as relevant today as we grapple with the level of violence our country saw last week with the SAF44 massacre, and this week, with what the ISIS did to the Jordanian pilot.

Since I watch the Crime Investigation Channel everyday, I know that there are sociopaths in our midst, but the ISIS takes these sociopathic acts to a higher level - since they make it seem valid by using Islam as the facade.
