World War One studies show mankind's instinct is for peaceSubmitted by mijj on Wed, 11/20/2013 - 06:34
this is the piece worth reading:
(The "BlackAdder" of the title was a UK BBC Comdey show centered on WWI trenches .. but is pretty much irrelevant to the content of the piece.)
What the piece shows is that, without the dedicated manipulations of central power, war would vanish. Somehow, we've been indoctrinated with the idea that war is due to some fundamental character failure of mankind. But, evidence shows the opposite. The fundamental character of mankind is Live and Let Live. Central Power has succeeded in projecting it's psychopathic character onto the whole of mankind.
