    Iiii.....don't think so.

    This is what happens when you have a state.

    Before there were grains, there were no slaves to control to fight to the death over.

        I think tens of thousands of years ago, when one group of humans ran across another group of humans, they most likely made love to each other rather than fight each other to the death and enslave one another.

        The practice of slavery and wars only became profitable after the agricultural revolution.

            Those people got that way because of the state. It's not a natural human condition to be a slave.

            I bet if you lived 80,000 years ago you would have a different opinion about people.

                Politics on a national scale may not be primal but it draws on primal instincts to motivate voters. Fear is a great motivation. In national politics the goal is to get as many people to fear the other opposition. I'm always amazed at just how many people who call themselves Republican or Democrat have little knowledge of the ideologies....let alone who they are actually voting for.

                case in point



                And James Carville reiterates in the following quote
                James Carville Quotes (Author of We're Right, They're Wrong)

                Ideologies aren't all that important. What's important is psychology.

                The Democratic constituency is just like a herd of cows. All you have to do is lay out enough silage and they come running. That's why I became an operative working with Democrats. With Democrats all you have to do is make a lot of noise, lay out the hay, and be ready to use the ole cattle prod in case a few want to bolt the herd.

                Eighty percent of the people who call themselves Democrats don't have a clue as to political reality.
                What amazes me is that you could take a group of people who are hard workers and convince them that they should support social programs that were the exact opposite of their own personal convictions. Put a little fear here and there and you can get people to vote any way you want.

                The voter is basically dumb and lazy.
                The reason I became a Democratic operative instead of a Republican was because there were more Democrats that didn't have a clue than there were Republicans.

                Truth is relative. Truth is what you can make the voter believe is the truth. If you're smart enough, truth is what you make the voter think it is. That's why I'm a Democrat. I can make the Democratic voters think whatever I want them to.”
                ― James Carville

                But the problem that Carville is missing is that because there is so much money at stake in presidential elections the operatives efforts are to keep the voters vague on issues thus preventing a truly informed rational vote while emphasizing fear in the voter towards the opposition.
                Would I be putting a grain-feed cow on a fad diet if I took it out of the feedlot and put it on pasture eating the grass nature intended?

                  Caring what political pundits say is even less Primal than actual politics themselves are.

                  Seriously, somebody can stretch definitions and rationalize concepts to make anything sound primal. "Twinkies are primal! I mean, Grok loved sweet things, because sweet things meant fruits. Plus, food was scarce, so Grok ate everything edible. So Grok would love Twinkies, and therefore Twinkies are Primal!" See?

                  At some point, you gotta say, "No, this is not Primal, it's just a stupid modern addiction and it's a deviation from a healthy body and spirit." American pop politics is way, way past that point. (Or I can put it this way: the people on my Facebook page who post Fox News/MSNBC political crap? They're not the sort of dudes that Primal men would wanna emulate. They're unhealthy in body and servile in spirit.)

                      How so? I searched for a source about the quote being fake and found nothing. Snopes had nothing

                        No, they just badmouth one another. A warrior either says nothing or acts.

                        They should man-up and decide precedence with deadly weapons not girlish insults.

                          I believe the correct way to say it is "Are politics primal?"

                            That's what a bonobo would have done. Not necessarily a human.

                              Perhaps, but I imagine there weren't very many people back in those days. I would think meeting another group of people would be a fairly uncommon event, and I'm not sure why they would automatically be aggressive against each other.

                              I think that tendency towards aggressiveness is a byproduct of the overpopulation created by the agricultural revolution and the rise of the city/state.

                                Bull crap. Plenty of human tribes have been violent without agriculture. We are sometimes a violent species. No way around that.

                                The whole "sexuality" comparison to bonobos makes no sense. We are more like chimpanzees than bonobos.
