Modern Violence (A Thomas Merton insight)

Thomas Merton is one of my favourite writers on spirituality. Written more than 50 years ago, many of his works are still relevant and insightful for modern living. This particular passage is an apt reminder that violence need not be guns, bullets, and weapons of destruction. It masquerades itself through other more subtle forms. Over time, it may pose a bigger and more potent danger to people, including our own selves.

There is a condition for this age-old symptom: "Restlessness."
