If I Ruled the World – Violence Will Be Eliminated (Daily Prompt)

You have been given a superpower to change one law of nature. How would you use it?

When I first saw this prompt, I wanted to write. Post about how I do not want to change anything in world. The world is beautiful enough and I do not want to mess around with the harmony that is life. Yes, we do have nasty diseases and conditions, and yes, we have to face death sooner or later but I do not want to change that.

However, a deeper look into our society forced me to change my mind. We hear about people killing each other, wars being fought which costs the lives of mothers, fathers and children, school shootings, teacher being killed by a student, and recently, 257 girls were kidnapped in Nigeria.

This is what I want to change. If i am given the superpower to change one law of nature, I will eliminate violence and psycho-/sociopathy. I am not going to pretend that I know all of the biological and societal reasons of how one becomes violent, and how I may change it. Although if given the said superpower, I imagine that one snap of my fingers would do the job.

Just imagine a world inhabited by people who are incapable of violence. How safe would we feel? Our fears will not be eliminated completely but it will significantly be lessened. I know that eliminating psycho-/sociopathy and violence would not eliminate all the problems in this world, but it is undoubtedly a great start.
