Spheres of Violence 1: Overview

Often times, self-protection experts claim to know how to solve criminal problems, but does expertise in warfare or policing translate to violence in the civilian world? In this article, we discuss the different types of violence, the source of our training in how to fight it, and how more often than not, we're only hearing one half of the story. Join us to take a peek behind the dark curtain of reality and into the minds of violent offenders in "Spheres of Violence".

Specifically, why do some groups become "greater than the sum of their parts", while others fracture, faction, and disintegrate? Using examples spanning from Aristotle, Kipling, Erickson, and Google, we make the case that the single most crucial crop you can cultivate is trust. Join us for "The Strength of the Pack".
