Violation of the inner I is widespread in our society. We complain about pedophilia but children are violated in almost every other possible way and no one cares (it's considered ok to tell them what to do, where to go, what to do, who to see, how to behave, what to say, and all sorts of other things). This kind of traumatic behavior passes on to adults, and so we consider it normal to be told what to do and how to live in controlled manner all of our lives.
Why is violence against the individual so widespread and why does it seem to be an integral part of our society? Perhaps human design is not originally intended for gregarious living in such large numbers, and our large societies only become possible with widespread violence, symbolized for instance in religious practices and social traditions. The way in which we regulate human behavior is the greatest source of violence.
Of course, without such violence there seems to be only two options for large societies: consciousness or chaos.
