Everybody knows primitives are violent and tangled up in “perpetual war for perpetual peace.” Anthropologists, archaeologists, and other social scientists pretend otherwise for ideological reasons, but also through a failure to think proportionally. Obviously tribes with, say, a dozen males of fighting age won’t ever put io statistics like modern nation states in WWII. But if a mere one of them dies that’s a ten percent casualty. If ten percent of our population were to die tomorrow That’d be thirty or so million people. Think about it.

Sorry, I didn’t mean to put “a dozen,” so the math is off.
