Amen. We do indeed have a bug in our operating system.
Unfortunately, the "small sample size" that our culture was developed from were the sociopaths of our society.
Good video. And for anyone that thinks culture is meaningless, even if you dont consider it in this way, you are crazy. Culture is all important to humans. It is our entire advantage over every other life form on the planet, and you should never forget that. It doesnt mean you should mindlessly embrace the one you have, but if you think you could function without one at all you are dead wrong. And if you tried, you would literally be dead in no time flat.
Human intelligence is HIGHLY overrated. We as a whole are not that intelligent. We have some intelligent members, who have some truly inspired moments. Human beings as individuals for the most part would never even figure out the most basic survival skills. One modern human alone, raised with no contact with other humans, would likely not even "invent" rudimentary things like fire use. Your "intelligence" is actually the memorization of hundreds of thousands of insights by the "geniuses" of our kind. On our own, we might be lucky to reproduce maybe one of those.
