There is growing concern in the face of violent actions and the manifest cruelty of human beings. Humanity has not yet had the intelligence to harmonize its efforts for the benefit of all, that is, for the benefit of itself. Many are those who think that aggressiveness and violence are inherent to animal life and, in particular, to human beings, on the contrary, what is inherent in human life is cooperation and affection. In many cases people immediately repent of an action, and yet they repeat it seconds, minutes, hours, days, months or years later. The temperament of species, races and sexes implies the existence of biological programming developed by phylogenetic history that favor the tendency to attack or flee. A greater alienation and, therefore, self-absorption, more is the tendency to see others as means, as objects, on which it is valid to exercise violence to obtain a certain benefit. It is true that emotional tension or neurosis can be temporarily diminished by some pleasant experience. The biological automatism generated by aggressiveness is effective and efficient when it directly attacks what threatens the well-being of a person. The Theory of Praxis considers that destructiveness as a frequent, intense or continuous feature is a psychological illness and not the natural expression of an instinct. For the Theory of Praxis, aggressiveness and destructive violence are generated in a person or in a collective due to the occurrence of ten possible factors, each of which may have different intensity. To really slow down and reduce social and family violence, it is necessary to design public policies that promote the fulfillment of each person's vocations. Investment in the prevention of violence is also the investment in a change of social paradigm that implies access to a new era in which human beings can finally cooperate to enhance their talents and the scope of their power to do.
