This is one of my favorite posts you've written, Spencer! I've also been thinking a lot about how people connect with each other, and the story you shared about the customer support agent reminded me of a podcast episode I listened to yesterday https://open.spotify.com/episode/4cVod5Rr212Zho5XDu3vCr?si=01a80652c3c54c88

I agree that sometimes it may feel unsafe to be trusting of everyone everywhere all the time given the violence we know exists in the world. My understanding is that many of the people who commit acts of violence have also been victims of violence, so I think your commentary that the acts of violence stem from "a society where people are driven away from their inherent nature because they aren’t fulfilled or taken care of or loved" may be alluding to that.
