Abstract

Our species works with a brain best suited to surviving prehistoric threat. We are biologically not well suited for, or perhaps are even maladapted for, surviving the current world problems. We are quick to recognize our primary social group as our place of safety. We risk or sacrifice our individual lives for the sake for the group and we idealize this behavior as one that bestows social prestige and cultural capital. We follow leaders who are quick to identify enemies and aggressive in their determination to destroy threats. We are socialized into discourse systems that energize words with danger when none exists.
