At first there is the factor of violence which is able to establish hierarchy pretty far.
Mix in social structures and you will soon arrive at tribalism and in uncivilized societies servant classes. (Those who have lost the war)
Very true, I didn't think about servant classes. Like the captives of war who became slaves which occurred in the 'civilized' societies too. I
think the argument that is being made in the video is about how the minority got control of the majority by being very 'sneaky sneaky'
Nevertheless you are right, war brings hierarchy very quickly but it's a very blatant event and often leaves traces history.
However, I believe that there is, and always has been, a natural hierarchy even in nature, for example dogs always have a pack leader and gorillas
have the silverback males who are the dominant leaders...
The theory in the video has some holes but I still think it is a very interesting concept.
The part that intrigues me is the definition of the word 'Occult'.
(1) eclipse: cause an eclipse of (a celestial body) by intervention; "The Sun eclipses the moon"
(2) supernatural: supernatural forces and events and beings collectively
(3) The word occult comes from the Latin word 'occultus' (clandestine, hidden, secret), referring to "knowledge of the hidden"
