Why People Hurt Others?

From today’s US headlines:  GOP Congressman and 3 Others Shot At Baseball Practice,  and 4 UPS Employees Shot,  former on the East Coast and the latter the West Coast.  And who knows how many in between.

What makes someone decide and follow through in hurting others? As I pondered this question, I came across Mary Rose’s post which suggests the scenarios of when the pain is too much and the ego is unchecked.

Emotional pain is real and much harder to deal with than physical pain.  We can talk about setting boundary, meditation, or counselling, et cetera.  But when society at large is negative or perceived so, does it serve as a relief valve for the individuals or exacerbate the situation?

I think the latter.

What do you think?
