To use an analogy, we could study a dog prone to violent outbursts, and make all sorts of hypotheses and theories that suggest dogs in general are just inherently violent - the "nature of the beast", if you will. However, when we zoom our focus outward and notice that someone has been ruthlessly poking at the dog with a stick, maybe that will add a little bit more understanding of the dog and our position may very well change.
It also does us no good to simply bunker down and hold firm in our own position and fire off charges at the other side
