A nothing we were, are, shall remain, flowering

another-reason

"Since our genes were evolved primarily in societies which were much more collectivist than individualist....we evolved to create rankings and to obey them, and the modern Wannabe individualists who competes fiercely to rise up the rankings ahead of his or her 'natural' position is flouting instinct. Likewise, it is 'unnatural' for us to have so many intense attachments and loyalties beyond our ascribed tribal ones [like the blogosphere?] and to keep breaking them by achieving new ones."
(Oliver James, Britain on The Couch, p325)
