    IRL it is different too. Some people refer to wisdom as common sense, while intelligence is more book smarts. But not always, as usual, definitions vary

    That strawman is even more stupid than your last one.

    At least the strongest would win, not the richest

    Where did I say that?

    And people are animals in fact we are the most violent and dangerous animals to ever have existed on this planet.

    Denying that because you think we are civilized is naive.

    And both you and I would most likely be dead by now.

    Maybe you did not say "that". but "that" is the topic of this thread.

    There may be truth to that.

    There are a lot of people running around now that could not possibly exist without being eaten by tiger cubs or simply starving to death waiting for someone else to provide meals.

    Cultural evolution doesn't follow the same patterns as biological evolution does, it actually more resembles Lamarckism; all that would happen is going through the same processes needed to support larger and larger populations all over again, only without repeating the courses that civilization has evolved to up to now, only it's far more likely to turn out far worse. The wishful thinking that a return to some mythical 'primitive paradise' is 'better' is shown to be junk by the very fact that humans didn't stay that way, and in fact put out a whole lot of effort to escape that sort of primitive brutality whenever possible. If you want to try it out for yourself in real time, just go get a lobotomy and have yourself dropped into the Amazon jungle somewhere, and see if it is as 'desirable' as your fantasies make it out to be.
