Violent people lead lives that often result in imprisonment or death. They are more often removed from the gene pool than before and I believe that will have long-term effects. I don't believe evolution will ever completely dissolve humanity's sickness of violence but it will reduce it.

It's not being primitive that creates these problems. It's mental variety expressed in different forms. As stated earlier, the more "sentient" a species has become, as shown in nature, the more their capacity for cruelty grows.

I am not a violent person. I am only willing to use violence, either defensively or offensively, as a means to secure my self and others.
From violence, though, right? If you were the only human capable of violence, would you ever express it?
