As violence erupts in endless cycles and old grievances re-emerge throughout the world, we are challenged to examine the underpinnings of protracted conflict. This work argues that the roots of such conflict lie in unacknowledged feelings of shame and rage, and that these emotions come into play when the social bond is damaged, leading to alienation and a spiral of destructive conflict. According to the author, it is by recognizing the emotional source of conflict and repairing the broken bond that peace is made possible.
