Re: We've relied on our survival drive all this time, is it still used?
My point? Reducing men to a lot of mal-functioning animals is pretty much what Hitler did.
But animals are what we are! We eat, shit and die the same as the rest of them despite our capacity for self-awareness.
Furthermore, it takes a particularly violent and ruthless animal to repeatedly commit genocide in countless wars. Hitler didn't have to "reduce" men. All he had to do was to appeal to their baser instincts.
