Document Summary

A story of chimps beating up a chimp like adolescents bullies would beat up someone they don"t like was introduced at beginning of chapter >> the chimp from the non-group chimps bled and died. Researchers conclude that violence is so extreme in chimps that being in the wrong place at the wrong time from the wrong group could mean death. However, aggression in chimps says nothing about humans. Humans are filled with this type of violence historically >> spartans, palestinians and israelis. Aggression is thought of as an evolved solution to the following: In cultures, men bond together to attack other groups and defend their own. Humans stockpile resources valuable for survival and reproduction more than any other species >> land, food, water. Many ways to gain resources held by others >> exchange, steal, trick, but also aggression. Aggression for co-opt resources can occur at individual and group level.
