what you describe as the negative and "inherent" aspects of humanities evils I see as the product of the transition into "civilized" society itself.
If you look to mythology, the maternal "mother" and nurturer / creator God, feminine creative energy of nature itself, was replaced by the paternal creator God when man moved into its first cities.
The proximity of the feminine creator God was in every living thing. In the paternal God view, a hierarchy was established mirroring the relationship of the "king" and then his ministers, and then his people, Down to the head of the house, which went from being the mother who gave the family life, to the father whose role kept them alive (much like the kings role).
Civilization brings humanities evils, but its core is still in the wild, with the proximity of its most divine in everything around it. In the civilized world we are never close to the supreme power since it always has middle men (ROLES) between us and it.
The role reversal of humanity which once depended on a mothers fertility for survival caused social upheaval in the establishment of the fathers supremacy for his role as protector. The very notion of a masculine creator is just absurd when the feminine is and always will be the creator we see in our lives, unless somehow there is an exception and your old man gives birth to you....lol
So the protector becomes supreme and his attributes that make the crossover into worthiness are his strength and destructive power that was once tempered and counterbalanced by the fertile female creator who made and nurtured rather than destroyed.
So civilized society in essence worships the destructive powers of chaos for creation instead of the order and power of creation ( What is really natural and mirrored in all we see) This contradiction makes us create a divide in our self perception compared to the rest of the life on the planet.
We are at our very core in direct contradiction of our nature by our attempts at "civilization". Civilization is a feigned attempt at justifying roles and establishing a hierarchy of supremacy that needs constant fuel since it is not natural and self enforcing. THAT is the source of our evil, that conflict and obsession with chaos and destruction that civilization instills in us.
The best example then of our natural state and our less conflicting state is that of tribal society.
It is also the best example for survival and continuity.
Have you noticed that ALL civilizations have been destroyed eventually, but there are tribes that have existed unchanged for the most part almost ETERNALLY?
That is your biggest clue......and it is huge. The Romes of time must fall and the "savages" will just watch and forget....Because they still remember their true nature
