D. KillianRosenberg starts with the question: What happens to disconnect us from our compassion, leading us to behave violently and exploitively? Rosenberg makes some challenging points: that compliments and apologies operate in a system of oppression; that rewards are as harmful as punishment, that killing is the easy way out. His distinction between punitive and protective force -- and how to discern when force is necessary -- should be required reading for anyone making foreign policy or policing, our streets. Demanding the ultimate form of responsibility -- and vulnerability -- it's no wonder that it has received little media and mass attention. Well-written and laid out, this book is accessible and easy to read.
