The Efficient and Effective Cause

When white nationalists violently clash with counter-protestors in Virginia, for example, what is the efficient cause?

Aristotle said really knowing something is to understand why. A wood table, for example, has an effective identity, which is its useful value. Its efficient cause is the carpenter who actualizes the formation of the effect, which is the useful value of the table. Useful value is, then, the apparent good of forming the effect on demand.

What is the efficient cause of violence in the streets? Is it because we allow immigrants to take jobs? Or is it really the effect of this…

What is the good to be derived from the bad, here and now, to the vanishing point, existing on demand?

What is the obtaining natural aesthetic in all the futures now?
