What I’m saying is that if you are in an environment where there is a dominance hierarchy in place you cannot safely ignore it. We may not like it and/or may think it a harmful evolution in society, but it does exist. In safe environments we can work to change it but when that dominance situation is one of predator and prey it is prudent to focus on surviving it. A bit like the anti-war hippie who got drafted and ended up in my platoon Vietnam. When bullets flew, they flew from his rifle too. The survival instinct is primitive and fundamental, in you, me and my cat. That’s what makes the positive change so difficult.

Retired and living my golden years in a world full of angry people.
