Selective Pressure
I think the question is what selection pressures are there on humans?

There is always the selective pressure involved with attracting a mate. This won't go away no matter how insulated humans become from environmental forces, and no longer having to compete physically with predators and prey animals.

Under a government which imprisons any unjustly, the true place for a just man is also in prison. Thoreau: Civil Disobedience (1846)

The apathy of the people is enough to make every statue leap from its pedestal and hasten the resurrection of the dead. William Lloyd Garrison.
