Hot take; crime is motivated by desperation and barbarity by social conditioning. Societies in scarcity and inequality breed desperate and barbaric people.

Double deluxe hot take; Liberalism thrives on enforcing scarcity and inequality to maintain its living standard.

Now, now, that statement isn't completely accurate: people are being raped, murdered, robbed, and tormented, not by some random assholes operating on their own, but by bandits empowered and armed by the State, which is totally different from being attacked by random jerks. Also it's not like bandits empowered by the State do greater damage on more massive a scale, than some random band of assholes. Oh, wait...
