ya i like this line of thought, not because ultimately it is right but the impulse for a line of questioning is right.
phonecians, jews, dogons, hishomites, termites, ultimately we are "ruled" by people who cared enough to investigate the intricacies of social dynamics, you know they shit not really put into detail in the religious texts. be good, but how? if i see weakness should i exploit it for the good of all? YES!!!!!!
lawl, i love all these people, they ruled by default, they conquered no one, they just took what was left laying on the table.
