The emotional terrorist & the violence prone

By Erin Pizzey

A kindle-book review by Erik Lugnet

What is the root of evil in the world? How is violence created? Some people would argue that it is in man’s very nature to be evil. That to tame the raging beast within, we must medicate ourselves with doses of civilization. This theory plays well into the agendas of religions like Christianity that has the concept of original sin, and also into the agendas of socialists and communists. Man is evil, only in God can he find salvation! Man is greedy, only the government can save us!

However this theory of ‘’evil by nature’’ does not conform to reality. On the contrary, the evidence points to man being inherently being neither evil nor good. Rather man is more like that of a fluid, taking the shape of what it is poured into. Adaptability, argued to be one of the biggest reasons we are the dominant species on earth.

In her book, Erin Pizzey provides strong evidence for this fluid human.

Mrs. Pizzey is known for having established one of the world’s first women’s shelter. And her book is built on her experiences taking in, caring and hearing the stories of women and their children who have escaped a violent household.

While the book is filled with great (and desperately needed) wisdom, it has been won through great suffering. The stories Mrs. Pizzey relays, the horrors she have seen are almost like that from a hell-dimension. But to discard the stories she shares is to make a grievous error that makes one culpable to letting evil reign over our children.

What Mrs. Pizzey concludes from her experiences, is that in many of the women and even children that came to seek her aid, there was an addiction to violence. Listening to the stories of those under her care, Mrs. Pizzey drew the conclusion that violence had been normalized in childhood, and was now in adulthood associated with pleasure for many of the women and children.

This kindle-book is written in a very easy language. But its contents can be, at many times be extremely difficult to stomach. What Mrs. Pizzey shares with us, is some of the most horrible abuse mankind has to offer.

But it is not pretending that the horrible abuse didn’t happen, and isn’t still happening, that we fight evil. It is by acknowledging it and learning where it comes from and why.
