I'm Sorry if my discussion with Vincent got a little out of hand. Scott's
statement above encapsulates the debate. Vincent appears to be saying that
it is human nature to be bloodthirsty and exploitative. Whereas I claim
that there are peoples who aren't. However when I have attempted to argue

which has departed from memetics.
