Domestic Violence is Violence.
fundamental principle supports the perpetration of violence. However,
by considering the various types of domestic violence one can begin to
recognize the underlying nature of violence itself. In the narrowest
perception of the term, domestic violence is violence between spouses,
or violence by parents against their children.
The term, domestic, can also refer to the domestic affairs of a nation
or an empire. Here, all too often the same kind of violence erupts. In
the broadest sense, the term can be applied to humanity as a whole,
where we see wars instigated, nation against nation, for the power, or
the glory, or the profit, of a few.
If one ties all these aspects together, a view will open up towards
solving the problem in every aspect in which it manifests itself.
Since these aspects are all but different manifests of the same
underlying cause, they can best be understood by exploring domestic
violence in every sphere it unfolds. The axiomatic assumptions that
enable violence to be perpetrated, which have been developed over long
periods for specific goals, override humanity's natural inclinations,
even the bond of love.
