Not even remotely, but it does bring up an important point. Ninty percent of all violent crimes are committed by young men between 18 and 25, and the majority of these men have been linked to a particular genetic makeup. Aggression as I said is supported in nature as survival advantage, but nature prefers to remain flexible on such details. Thus you have cultures like the !Kung who had only one serious rape, murder or theft every fourhundred years before the the white man came. Many have already suggested gene therapy to deal with the problem.I think I saw an episode of The Outer Limits like this once, well, not quite,
"Kinder, gentler" are your words, not mine.Anyway, the point is, the "kinder, gentler, doers of good deeds" are not always the best people to govern the rest, it really depends on the situation. You can't account for all possibilities all of the time, so you have to try to account for most of the possibilites most of the time and hope the rest don't come back to bite you in the arse.
Grameen Bank doesn't just give money away, they demand services in return. The vast majority of the people they loan money to are women. The reason why is women are not only less violent, but tend to manage money better and be more reliable in keeping their end of the bargan. Grameen is now worth over a billion dollars and claims to have never had a single person renige on the bargan. The women make sure of that with the ferocity only an outraged mamma can bring to the situation.
However, Grameen presents a threat to loan sharks everywhere who prey on the destitute. If any of them attacked the bank though, they'd have hell to pay not only from these women but their husbands and everyone else as well. Other grass roots organizations such as this, like habitat for humanity, have also proven their ability to survive. In olden times, banks and other corporate interests might have easily destroyed such efforts.
I'm not talking about some kind of perfect lovey dovey Utopia. If you like fiction, Star Trek presents a much better example of the kind of meritocracy I am talking about. The behind the scenes story of Star Trek is that the earth has become a meritocracy in which money plays a vanishingly small role. If someone wants something, they just walk up to the nearest replicator and ask for it. As for maintaining order and being prepared for the unexpected, they have star fleet which serves the entire world.
To a great extent, this process has already begun. As I've already said, ninty percent of the wealth of the world today is essentially speculation, in other words, information. Already one quarter of international trade today is barter trade. It simply makes no sense whatsoever to use money when the Russian Ruble changes value so quickly. Likewise, just as computers keep getting cheaper and more powerful every few years the same thing is happening across the board. Cars today cost one third what they used to, last three times as long, and come with lots of fluffy extras.
These are all trends economists and others have remarked upon for over ten years now. Huge changes in the world economy are expected sometime in the near future, but exactly what they will be and how it will occur are matters of intense speculation. However, a few things everyone agrees upon is that money will play a smaller role, information and barter trade will play an even larger role, and eventually these changes will entirely eclipse the current military/industrial complex just as it eclipsed the agracultural revolution.
I could go on and on, but if you wish to really understand long term economic, political, and cultural trends you should just read up on the subjects. What is certain is that describing them largely in terms of ancient fears, the present, and ethnocentric terms is misleading to say the least. Of all the people that have ever lived in civilization, half are alive today.
