Why are we such a power hungry species? Every race, religion, tribe, ethnicity, political system, etc. has had examples of people abusing power and authority and becoming drunk with wanting to have some fleeting control over the lives of other human beings. Why do you think this is? Are we, deep down inside, a very insecure species or what? If so, are we naturally this way or are we made to feel this way by outside forces or social pressures or what?

Why can't we just be humble and not try to dominate or control one another? What do you think causes this in the human mind/soul/psyche/whatever?

It's our animal instinct. Gorillas fight for power then banish the other male. Same thing with Chimpanzees but instead of banishing the Winning male allows the losing male to stay in the family but isn't allowed to mate, only the Alpha male is allowed to.

Humans are the same, put two Men in the same room together and both will try to rule over the other.
But unlike other animals we have the spirit and soul to conquer our instincts, but alas it is very difficult.
