    Since groups obviously ARE structured and structure tends to take place any time people get together, where is all this evidence against it?  Eric Berne, pstychiatrist, now deceased, used to talk about structure hunger in human beings.  Where do we see examples of groups that are unstructured?  In what society do people not divide themselves up into leaders and followers and start making rules for members of the group to follow?  I can't think of one.  And even if we can find a few, they would only be the exception that proves the rule rather than concrete evidence that what we see before our eyes doesn't exist.
