Five Flaws of the Monkey Brain in the Modern World

1. Separating ourselves from the animals, then separating ourselves from each other.

2. Needing hierarchy, a pecking order of alpha males all the way up to the Old Guy With a Beard in the Sky.

3. Worshiping violence.

4. Clinging to dogma despite obvious empirical evidence to the contrary; trusting our intuition over our reason.

5. Exploiting the young for financial and personal short-term gain.
