Dressing up for Halloween in Taipei, children re-enact a display of anger. When one becomes ‘Hulk,’ bearing fists and puffing out the chest in a display of self-might, notice the reaction of others: fear, shock, and even redicule. How silly our drama seems sometimes! But, we seem to love playing these roles.

“When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”
–Jimi Hendrix
