Fear and Violence

Is fear at the root of all violence? When people engage in violence (verbal or physical), their justifications can always be translated back to some form of fear. But does fear justify violence? If we are scared enough, or hurt enough, is it then okay to lash out in violence? Why?

Or are there other ways to deal with fear?

And is it possible to teach people positive and effective ways of dealing with their fear and anxiety?
