The majority of events between humans are non-violent. I think. But I'm not sure.

If someone has spent much time around violence, they may be in an interaction that seems non-violent from the outside, but may feel violent to them.

They may, based on experience, feel the possibility of violence in many contacts. That may make them scared; it may make them emit the possibility of violence to whoever they are interacting with.

There's a lot of that going around. What percentage of all human interactions are truly non-violent, inside and out?
