From terror attacks to campus threats, jihadist wars in the name of extreme religion, protest groups shouting at each other to the vitriol of the anonymous internet--it seems our world is seething with anger. Anger begets hatred. Hatred begets evil. Evil begets fear, which begets anger, which begets more hatred, then more evil.
