Humans are biologically endowed with the capacity to defend themselves and to achieve goals by becoming aggressive. Just like many other species such predispositions are inhibited by the Mechanism of Inhibition of Violence (MoV). In order to gain a more acute view of the pervasiveness of destructiveness and violence in human everyday life, Liotti proposes, the contextual as well as developmental peculiarities of human mental functioning which may account for the de-activation of MoV. I suggest that another powerful source of MoV deactivation relies in the memory of our own fragility and the sense of precariousness encompassing the development of our sense of self.
