HUMAN HELL AND THE DEMONS OF WAR: BRANCH WARFARE AND THE EVOLUTION OF AGGRESSION by Manuel Valenzuela
"...For as long as we have walked this now scarred Earth the demons running in our veins have dominated us, corroding our societies and humanity, manipulating us toward unleashing the great evil living within us. In the end, the human hell called war will be our demise as our inability to comprehend who and what we are will crash with the ever-expanding lethality of our technologies..."

Human Hell and the Demons of War

Branch Warfare and the Evolution of Aggression


By Manuel Valenzuela


10/04/06 "Information Clearing House" - [link to www.informationclearinghouse.info] - The pages of history, those monuments to humankind’s brief rule over the planet, are replete with violence, death and destruction. Indeed, it can be argued successfully that war, genocide, ethnic cleansing and human violence against each other have defined humanity’s tumultuous existence on Earth. We are inseparable from death and destruction, suffering and violence. Turning the pages of the little we know of our own past, one thing becomes quite apparent: Throughout time, in all corners of the world, mankind has lived side by side with war, destruction and death. We have defined our existence through the self-inflicted violence we unleash upon ourselves. What is it about the human condition that espouses in us a propensity to grossly annihilate ourselves, inflicting horrendous misery onto our kind?

Violence and humanity were born conjoined twins out of the thick canopy of our ancestral home in the Eastern African jungles. Even in the ape-like appearance and behavior of our primate selves could our violent genes be seen. Competition forced upon us the will to survive through the defeat of competitor groups. Wars waged high in the canopy became the first symptoms of our disease. Group versus group, competitor versus competitor, the violence ingrained in us manifested itself in the primitive battles and hollowed screams of our long-gone ancestors.

Branch to branch, foot by foot, with nail and teeth the prelude to modern warfare was born.

Struggling over territory we fought interlopers; competing for finite resources we waged battles. Our drive to procreate pitted male versus male in animalistic bouts of combat that killed, wounded or banished. The winner of such fights controlled fertile females, claiming new forested territory as a result, thus becoming the new procreator of genetic bonds, killing off genetic competitor’s offspring if he had to. Survival of the fittest ensured that only our most able ancestors succeeded and passed on their seed to future generations.

In a world of survival that depended on an ability to defend the group and protect territory from alien invaders our primate ancestors had to evolve violence. Only those who developed the greatest propensity to violence and those who possessed the best skills in combat could be assured of survival. Thus, it was these skills and propensities that got passed down generation to generation, eventually becoming attached to our evolving makeup. Survival of the fittest demanded that violence become part of the human condition, a necessary and adaptable behavior needed to survive and thrive.

"In truth, perhaps our very existence is defined by war and violence, and addicted we have become to the horrors our creative energies wreak upon our world. Maybe violence is as ingrained a part of our psyches as love, affection and happiness are. How else do we explain an entire existence, spanning many hundreds of thousands of years, scarred by death, violence, destruction and suffering? Only when we confront our animal selves and escape this delusion of ourselves as almighty creatures of chosen prowess will we find respite from our evil ways. Until then, only the dead can be assured of never again experiencing that most devastating of human hells called war."

He is a very articulate writer. I do disagree on one point. Not all cultures have thrived on warfare, but certainly all have been defined by it over time.

Re: HUMAN HELL AND THE DEMONS OF WAR: BRANCH WARFARE AND THE EVOLUTION OF AGGRESSION by Manuel Valenzuela
The thing that gets me with "evolution", is that for billions of years animals have been evolving(survival of the fittest:only the most aware of reality survive)to the stage where mankind is now the crowning achievement of all that killed or be killed (for >survival only<)natural selection process. Why would a multi billion year process create such a species like man, who lives in a total delusion, totally unaware of nature and all of its laws for? I see this as evidence of a de-evolution, a total breakaway from tried and proven methods of survival, and so man is not at all part, of a "evolutionary" process

More and more, our focus appears to be placed on competition, rather than towards cooperation.

Yet, it's a known fact (to anyone other than Creationists, I suppose) that any species which competes with itself, eventually, destroys itself.

The proverbial 'writing's on the wall', as Valenzuela so elequently explains.

Valenzuela needed to take a very long vacation in the Bahamas or hang out at a stripper bar frequently.

Difficult climatic conditions which can force changes in resource availability anywhere can force humans to become violent or harsh to each other for survival's sake. The world wasn't made to be a home sweet home for everyone in the first place.

Either you can make it or not in this world.

Has it occurred to you that we can also evolve and learn to cooperate instead of compete?

We are still evolving. It would take us humans a million years or so to reach the very pinnacle of a perfect godlike being, pure and non-manipulated. At this point, we have to compete in order to cooperate and get that far. There's no amount of learning to cooperate if we cannot understand what does all of us have to take to get that far.
