FRIDAY / MARCH 9 / 2018


"Warfare and violence are not the same thing. All humans are prone to violence, though some conditions, like overcrowding for example, bring out the worst in us. That doesn't make us evil or bullies; it just is what it is. What separates warfare from violence is that it is one group attacking another and it is planned. When a fight breaks out, it is usually spontaneous. Most people might approach each other angry, but there's usually not a whole lot of forethought in the whole ordeal. Either way, it's typically individuals who've got no other way or interest in avoiding a circumstance that involves the two of them directly. You see this more among gatherer hunters who only take matters into their own hands. Warfare is made possible by the settling of societies as relationships solidify around the semi permanent structures they live within. Unlike the unrestricted band membership among nomadic gatherer-hunters, group identity begins to emerge. As society breaks away from wildness through what it eats, it develops that same distance between itself and the "Other". It's easy for outsiders to become enemies, especially when things start to become tougher in your own life. But warfare is more complicated: it doesn't just happen, and there are specific reasons..."
