I am not sure if such training would result in more rational choices. But I guess at least they will be less likely to be gripped by terror and end up shooting indiscriminately.
When I set out to lead humanity along my Golden Path I promised a lesson their bones would remember. I know a profound pattern humans deny with words even while their actions affirm it. They say they seek security and quiet, conditions they call peace. Even as they speak, they create seeds of turmoil and violence.
