    Interesting proposition. It has often occurred to me that we are one of natures experiments in extremes that has gone too far. Saber toothed tigers developed teeth too big to be practical. We may have developed brains too big for our own good. Our reach exceeds our grasp, or at least the grasp of the least of us, and they are legion.

    Humanities greatest acheivements arise during times of challenge, struggle, and conflict. The human animal is not equipped to thrive in times of peace.

    I think part of our brains may be overdeveloped and part underdeveloped.
    We are more interested in "things" than each other
    More interested in "winning" and being right that peaceful assembly

    If we are meant to be "warriors" by nature, the only true winners will be shown by brute strength, because, opinions vary and even views of reality vary.

    No animals are ever fully at peace.
    We already have figured out how to survive - unfortunately, our priorities are now totally misplaced...

    We are fighting over things that can't be agreed upon.
    We are unwilling to accept differences and prefer instead to pound our heads against walls trying to make people see our way that never will, and, further more, that maybe shouldn't. It's good for people to be different.

    We should be focusing on how we can live together and LEARN when it's just time to let go is bickering. Because most of it is just that. Bickering and noise.

    That's what our constitution is for. However the left doesn't respect the constitution. As such they only seek to further their agenda without regard to the opinions and desires of their fellow Americans.

    But there is no evidence to support that. We have however compiled a lot more knowledge over time, by which to apply that intelligence.
