Interview ‘Internal Kitchen’ Radio 1: Long live aggression!

In ‘Internal Kitchen’ on Radio 1, Marjan told about our view of aggression, under the slogan: “Long live aggression! We have aggression. We can better learn to live with it. The only question is: how?”

It is in each of us. And this is a good thing too! Because without anger nothing will change. In a world without anger we do not want to live. Dissatisfaction helps people move mountains. Anger is a power source that helps people to tackle abuses. Babies who cannot do something, become angry and get to know their boundaries. Top sport always has something aggressive. Ditto for good sex. You don’t want all that drowsy and slap and secure and well-behaved.

But you also don’t want to be repulsed by your husband or kill your child in a fit of rage. Or bump into a returned Syria warrior on the street that stands stiff of adrenaline and testosterone. Aggression is terrifying. At the same time, there is no escape. How do you fix it?

For Marjan Gryson the answer is clear. She gives guidance to detainees and aggression for 10 years, and for her it’s very simple: we have aggression. We better learn to live with it. The only question is: how?
