Aftermath of a conversation I could not bring myself to participate in at work

I really wish I could figure out how to convey to people that, in a world with seven billion people in it, and all the resources concentrated in the hands of a few thousand of them, people are going to get violent from time to time, and rather than focusing your own violent urges on this hypocritical, phony, condescendingly moralistic urge to punish, you should either be refocusing it into non-violent, constructive acts or, failing that, focusing it upwards.
