How much trouble could be averted

Been chewing on something in the back of my brain. What is the root, or one of the roots, of all the anger that comes from some people thinking  get to control other people?  When push comes to shove, that misconception is at the bottom of a whole lot of the trouble in the world, and certainly in America in this present age.

Hit on a theory for some of the origin of  this control-freakish trouble between  people:

There is a basic failure to understand something in the Bible that some people take literally and to extremes.

That part about man having dominion over the world and the beasts might just be part of the problem. Seems too many people think they are THE MAN who gets to be the boss of me, and you, and everybody else.  And that’s when the fight started.
