Society is a human construct which arose in the most bizarre of manners. It is, for all intents and purposes, un-natural. Man is, by nature, a social animal, yes. But humans are also predators. Whether one believes in evolution, or creationism (of any form), the same still goes. In the old testament, it tells us that man was given dominion over all animals, in The Origin Of Species we are told that man overcame due to predatory prowess. And yet we gather together in these tight, un-natural hot-spots that we call cities. Think of putting huge numbers of bears in a tightly packed community like that; allowing them to inter-breed, to build social constructs (yes, I know they are not social animals but bear with me. Hehe). They would, in some instances,, snap and perform some act of violence. This is seen as robbery, assaults, murders, etc. I am not saying society is a bad thing, in fact without it we would not be here. But it is interesting to think about.
Anything that comes to your mind and you need another person's opinion! Or if you want a debate I would be more than happy to oblige. Just look at my areas of expertise for any specific questions. :)
I was turned on to the TED talks by a great man and Youtuber, Ze Frank. After watching his talks I began to search through others and I quickly realized that I had stumbled across a whole new world of intelligent people sharing ideas. Needless to say, I was sold.
