David Byrne in /How Music Works/ reminds us that violence can be a form
of expression where there is powerlessness:
"Roger Graef, who has written about the effectiveness of arts programs
in UK prisons, believes that violence, like art, is actually a form of
expression." ... "He claims that the remedy for violence is an agency
that will defeat feelings of impotence. Historically, religion has
successfully done this, and the rise of fundamentalism might be viewed
as a reaction to increasing feelings of alienation and
inconsequentiality around the world."
