Not Listening Leads To Violence

Not listening can lead to violence. This can be on a one-to-one basis or group to group. If a country does not listen to people who feel passionately about something, these people may see violence as their only option. These people who were not listened to may then be called "terrorists."

Likewise, on a very large scale, when the government does not listen to the people, the people may eventually revolt with violence.

Right now in the USA there is a growing group of people who want to feel and be less controlled by the government. They want to be "sovereign citizens." Here is what one of them said in an interview with 60 Minutes:

The threat of violence is required because they will not listen. The system will not listen to people like me unless there are other people that back me up who have guns. - Alfred Adask (1)
