The Bluesman is Always a Social Interpreter
One of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they seem to sense, once hate is gone, that they will be forced to deal with pain. 'Notes of a Native Son' 1955 http://www.valdosta.edu/~cawalker/baldwin.htm & James Baldwin My Dungeon Shook
The issues of violence and love/hate is an age old discussion, but, I believe neuropsychology has proven some underling realities. The problems of institutional violence caused by Clan, Race, Creed or at the hands of Enforcement professionals must now be viewed from today’s knowledge not yesterday’s rational or perceptional tales handed down by parents, family, religion, or associations.
This Nation of my adaptations is in deep pain on the one hand and still quite wealthy. The anger and unhappiness has surfaced again to the election, killings by Police, anger amidst native-born Afro-American young adults, and our best watch Emmy goes again to Game of Thrones. The genre of Dystopian storytelling has become our modish Apocalypse’s. Zombies and Robotic AI, the new 666, quite a human tradition. And of course we must retell Days of Bloody Glory even in Animated or Anime.
The Self is a passing illusion, shaped by life experiences where there are a few in one's life span. That many human action is unconscious because of efficiency of doing in Space/Time/Event.
We know the child is quickly formed by its inborn flavor of common human emotions, genes and intelligence. The brain/mind wants to learn and touch everything, in most cases. The Person that develops is influenced by self-identity, family, tribe and social bonds quite early. Why the passage of Young Adult has been recognized universally! The protectors and authority respected by these growing adults is of great influence, since fear and anxiety are key social measures within inevitable social hierocracies.
The difficulty is to teach the multitude that something can be both true and untrue at the same time. Arthur Schopenhauer
Unconscious loves and hates are understood and empathies even better today. Capitalism is built on consumer affinities today, codifying unique much more. Yet, society is built on power and restraints of the human propensity to be inhumane for whatever reasons. The paradox of the Persona and Society is never ending problem for Human Life as we move closer to AI. Nefarious action by those in power and authority must always be challenged, for once institutionalized as everyday custom and evil, we have a serious National Problem. Police must address its misnomers on killing within its ranks

"I became an even firmer believer in psychic determinism, Freud's idea that nothing in one's mental life occurs by chance
Likewise, understanding the biology in no way denies the richness or complexity of thought. Rather, by focusing one component of a mental process at a time, reduction can expand our view, allowing us to perceive previously unanticipated relationships between biological and psychological phenomena"
...we remember Anowa saying that none of us belongs, that we are all wayfarers. At the same time, even though we belong to no place, we can belong to ourselves. We may have to break taboos on our way to new life. We know that this entails risk, and that it promises but does not guarantee liberation.
