A man is angered; he goes to strike another, but is withheld by his friends. In such a simple situation we can see how his aggression was mobilized, and how it found direct expression. But aggression is constantly manifesting itself in much more devious ways: the indifferent manner of the civil servant toward us; our own authoritative attitude to the shop assistant; or in higher places, the judge’s deliverance of a more severe sentence than the case would seem to warrant. These facets of behaviour are all manifestations of aggression; so also are our forthright attitudes toward both minority groups and the established order of the state. When we talk too loudly or talk too quickly on a subject that affects us, it is aggression which motivates us. In fact, our aggression is continually influencing our behaviour in an emotional way in all the small things we do in our everyday life. If we look for it, we soon recognize it in our friends, and with a little introspection we are humiliated to find the same force within ourselves.
