The human is prone to gratuitous violence. Everything in human psychology is rigidly controlled by the instinct to survive, a leftover from the days when people lived in caves and hunted for large predators. What worked then no longer works and people are stuck in survival mode — killing and maiming one another because all outsiders are considered enemies. It is on TV and in ads. Humans need the excitement of vicarious violence, but the thrill needs increasing stimuli. War is the answer for all human problems, it seems. Armageddon seems to be what people seek.
