The violence that the animal man displays is in most cases no different than that shown by other species. It is not a learned behavior. It instead is hard wired. what is learned is the control of these behaviors that are at odds with our psychological evolution. You will often find cases of animals eating their young but this is a relatively rare occurrence with humans. And would be considered the paragon of violence. Most of what people do can be found duplicated in other species. Its just that societal pressures keep us from doing it as quickly as our animal brothers. Jim
