Even the most ardent defenders of sexuality buckle under its weight, as never-ending bipartisan perp-walks of politicians (Clinton, Vitter, Gingrich, Craig, Foley, Spitzer, Sanford) and religious figures (Haggard, Swaggert, Bakker) trumpet their support of before slinking off to private assignations with lovers, prostitutes, and interns. Hundreds of Catholic priests have confessed to thousands of sex crimes against children in the past few decades alone. While hunting and gathering remain important for some groups, motor vehicles, aluminum boats with outboard engines, guns, and other introduced tools have replaced indigenous techniques.—The staple food is the sweet potato. In his discussion of “our most peaceful age,” he makes no mention of the Rape of Nanking, the entire Pacific theater of World War II (including the detonation of two nuclear bombs over Japan), the Khmer Rouge and Pol Pot’s killing fields in Cambodia, several consecutive decades-long wars in Vietnam (against the Japanese, French, and Americans), the Chinese revolution and civil war, the India/Pakistan separation and subsequent wars, or the Korean war.
In 2008, the Catholic Church paid 6 million in compensation for sexual abuse. Like other groups in Papua New Guinea, domestic pigs are prized for meat and status.9. None of these many millions are included in his assessment of twentieth-century (male) war fatalities. He leaves out every one of South America’s various twentieth-century wars and dictatorships infamous for torturing and disappearing tens of thousands of civilians.
And how many of the couples who manage to stay together for the long haul have done so by resigning themselves to sacrificing their eroticism on the altar of three of life’s irreplaceable joys: family stability, companionship, and emotional, if not sexual, intimacy? They—unlike true immediate-return foragers—have a lot to lose by simply fleeing aggression. If you live a settled life in a stable village, have a labor-expensive shelter, cultivated fields, domesticated animals, and too many possessions to carry easily, you’re not a hunter-gatherer.
Are those who aspire to these joys cursed by nature to preside over the slow strangulation of their partner’s libido? Keeley acknowledges this crucial difference, writing, “Farmers and sedentary hunter-gatherers had little alternative but to meet force with force or, after injury, to discourage further depredations by taking revenge” (p. Prehistoric human beings did not have any of these things, which is, after all, precisely what made them “prehistoric.” Pinker either fails to appreciate this essential point, or simply ignores it.8.
If it’s highly personal, extremely complex, changing all the time, and really nobody’s business but yours, why answer the question at all? )– Professor Pinker, Red in Tooth and Claw– The Mysterious Disappearance of Margaret Power– The Spoils of War– The Napoleonic Invasion (The Yanomami Controversy)– The Desperate Search for Hippie Hypocrisy and Bonobo Brutality14. Even if we never slip (and we all do), our inner nature can pull us under at any moment. Boone Abstract Two types of models aim to account the origins of rank differentiation and social hierarchy in human societies. Ferguson (1995) offers an in-depth analysis of Chagnon’s calculations and conclusions.

Those of us raised in the West have been assured that we humans are special, unique among living things, above and beyond the world around us, exempt from the humilities and humiliations that pervade and define animal life. Here’s a paper that supports our contention that egalitarian social organization is more functional for small scale social groups like those of the EEA (see references to Dunbar’s number) and that more hierarchical power structures emerge when the group gets too big for consensus rule. Conflict models suggest that the formation of social hierarchies is synonymous with the establishment of relationships of coercive social dominance and exploitation. Strangely,even though he agrees with this central point made by Power, de Waal barely mentions her work—and only to dismiss her, at that. For more of Ferguson’s views on the origins of war, the following two papers can be downloaded from his departmental web page ( Tribal, “Ethnic,” and Global Wars, and Ten Points on War, which includes a broad discussion of biology, archaeology, and the Yanomami controversy.

The Ape in the Mirror– Primates and Human Nature– Doubting the Chimpanzee Model– In Search of Primate Continuity5. The natural world lies below and beneath us, a cause for shame, disgust, or alarm; something smelly and messy to be hidden behind closed doors, drawn curtains, and minty freshness. A theory of leadership in human cooperative groups Journal of Theoretical Biology Available online 2 June 2010. Voluntary or 'integrative' models, on the other hand, suggest that rank differentiation—the differentiation of leader from follower, ruler from ruled, or state from subject—may sometimes be preferred over more egalitarian social arrangements as a solution to the challenges of life in social groups, such as conflict over resources, coordination failures, and free-riding in cooperative relationships. In an endnote in his 1996 book, , he writes, “On the basis of her reading of the literature, Power (1991) has argued that provisioning at some field sites (such as Gombe’s banana camp) turned the chimpanzees more violent and less egalitarian, and thus changed the ‘tone’ of relationships both within and between communities. Borofsky (2005) offers a balanced account of the controversy and the context in which it occurred.
We shared a common ancestor with two of these apes—bonobos and chimps—just five million years ago. Readers with mental images of Sioux (Lakota) chiefs with eagle-feather war bonnets rippling in the wind should keep in mind that in the generations before first contact with whites, disease spread through many tribes and the arrival of horses brought severe cultural disruptions, leading to conflict between groups that had been at peace previously (see Brown, 1970/2001).25. By comparison, Chagnon’s total time among the Yanomami adds up to about five years.
She works in Blackwell, OK and specializes in Internal Medicine. Allen is affiliated with Blackwell Regional Hospital. Confronting the Sky Together– Everybody Out of the Closet– The Marriage of the Sun and the Moon Acknowledgments References and Suggested Further Reading Notes Index is one of the five surviving species of great apes, along with chimpanzees, bonobos, gorillas, and orangutans (gibbons are considered a “lesser ape”). Give us the knowledge that we may continue to pray with understanding hearts, and show us what each one of us can do to set forth the coming of the day of universal peace. Not having examined these charges in detail, we have nothing to add to that discussion, limiting our critique to Changnon’s methodology and scholarship as it applies to Yanomami warfare.29. – Kellogg’s Guide to Child Abuse– The Curse of Calvin Coolidge– Ten More Reasons Why I Need Somebody New (Just Like You)22. Give us the faith to trust the goodness in spite of our ignorance and weakness. The bulk of the controversy concerns Tierney’s charges that Chagnon and his colleague, James Neel, may have caused a fatal epidemic among the Yanomami. Worldwide, pornography is reported to rake in anywhere from fifty-seven to a hundred-“Americans spend more money at strip clubs than at Broadway, off-Broadway, regional and nonprofit theaters, the opera, the ballet and jazz and classical music performances—combined.”There’s no denying that we’re a species with a sweet tooth for sex. See de Waal (2009) for much more on the biological origins of empathy and instinctive justice. They raise pigs, used not only for meat but for important ritualistic celebrations.—About 90 percent of the diet is sweet potatoes. Domestic pigs are important both for currency used in barter and for the celebration of important events. To make matters even worse, Pinker juxtaposes these bogus “hunter-gatherer” mortality rates with a tiny bar showing the relatively few war-related deaths of males in twentieth-century United States and Europe. Perhaps most important, the twentieth century gave birth to “total war” between nations, in which civilians (not just male combatants) were targeted for psycho- logical advantage (Dresden, Hiroshima, Nagasaki . .), so counting only male mortalities is meaningless. Meanwhile, so-called traditional marriage appears to be under assault from all sides—as it collapses from within. Pig theft is a major cause of conflict.—The economy was based primarily on fishing, collecting shellfish, hunting, and gathering until the establishment of missions and the gradual introduction of market goods in the 1930s and 1940s. Furthermore, why did Pinker not include the tens of millions who died in some of the most vicious and deadly examples of twentieth-century warfare?
