why we react ? or the anatomy of reactions

Reactions, sometimes aggressive or fanatical happen due to mass hysteria creating brain washing which push many into some identity cages and if they happen to venerate then they virtually entwine the entire life in that cage and venerate the walls of the cage that and end up getting agitated when someone tries to shake the cage or worse still break the wall of the cage. 

This happens with all religions,ideological, political affiliations  and religious practices manifesting itself with varying degrees of fanaticism and intolerance. 

Levels of scrutiny , extent of criticism, limits of tolerance,philosophical consolations etc , everything becomes very elastic or rigid depending upon whom it affects at that particular instant and how the affected people take it. 

Depending on the nature, circumstances, situations, nurtured attitudes etc proportionately  the reactions, retributions,revenge etc will manifest.

If by nature and nurture the creatures caged inside these cages are soft and mild then their reactions also will be manifested in varying degrees of intensity like soft and  sophisticated  exhibiting either gentle acceptance of inevitability or graceful withdrawal from the cage or a meek surrender out of utter cowardliness or silent fuming in frustration or total fatalistic indifference etc but if the creature caged inside is wild by nature or nurture then the reactions towards any slight disturbance to its territory will be very violent, aggressive and criminal etc 

Unfortunately there is neither any panacea nor complete perfect system or scripture which we can refer to for solutions to all our problems but all of us forget this and jump out to justify or defend our cages be they religious,political,ideological,scriptural,cultural, territorial etc .

No system can provide us immense intelligence to understand everything and everyone nor can it give immortality. That's perhaps why even Lord Krishna's primary advocacy was  detachment to the fruits/results of whatever you do, because you are neither the producer nor the director of your life but only the actor .
