    Human nature is driven by carnal pleasures and the need to be the strongest, the leader. So yeah, these things will never change.

    It's human nature. We can learn how to control ourselves but we can't erase those things.

    Well then why don't we just strip of go live in the jungle, throw poo at each other all day and saves ourselves the trouble of even trying to deny our animialistic nature.

    I did not say that. I said that we have animalistic instincts that can be controlled but not erased - therefore, we will always be at least a little bit influenced by it. It is a good thing that we have become as civil as we are today.
