Violence is never a solution in my plays, just as ultimately violence is never a solution in human affairs.
I loved my parents... but that can never change the fact that my father's violence ruined my childhood.
I'm very disturbed by violence against women when it is violence.
Mission accomplished, we didn't have any problems as far as violence goes.
Whether it's repro rights, violence against women, or just plain old vanilla sexism, most issues affecting women have one thing in common - they exist to keep women 'in their place.' To make sure that we're acting 'appropriately,' whatever that means.

You can't write about the past and ignore religion. It was such a fundamental, mind-shaping, driving force for pre-modern societies. I'm very interested in what religion does to us - its capacity to create love and empathy or hatred and violence.
In the book, America had already been weakened by bio terror plagues before waves of selfish violence took down the rest. But the real enemy was the kind of male human being who nurses fantasies of violent glory at the expense of his fellow citizens.
The problem is not Hamas, the problem is not people. The root of the problem is Islam itself as an idea, as an idea.

Chloe Grace Moretz

Once we accept violence as an adaptation, it makes sense that its expression is calibrated to the environment.
