>I'm talking like, 'dawn of man' era, not a post-french revolution state.

The "dawn of man" era is what Hobbes and his predecessors refer to as the "state of nature". Even though Hobbes is writing during the 17th century, he is concerned with establishing how the very first political organizations formed out of the state of nature. Essentially Hobbes is saying that primitive man would make a rational choice to give up a few rights to secure others. Even if you are a primitive man you can realize the benefits of increasing your security through political organization.

It has been a while since I have read the Leviathan so don't take my brief account of what he says as correct. You can read the whole thing for free on the internet http://oregonstate.edu/instruct/phl302/texts/hobbes/leviathan-a.html#CHAPTERI. However, it is somewhat of a tough read because of the outdated language. Robert Nozick's Anarchy, State, and Utopia is a much more modern book that addresses your concern in the first chapter. It is also one the most influential books of the 20th century. http://www.amazon.com/Anarchy-State-Utopia-Robert-Nozick/dp/0465097200

>religion was good.

It very well might of been, but I'm just saying that there are aslo other very good reasons to form political organizations and laws.

Definitely not questioning your story, but I am VERY skeptical. Sounds like an awesome product if it indeed does work.

I'd like to recommend this book to you. It's a short, easy read, and is very insightful on the behavior that you just demonstrated right there.

The topic of the book is the "mechanism of invalidation", wherein someone attempts to wound the self esteem of another person in an attempt to help their own self esteem.

You response was nothing more than attempt to poke me in the eye. No content, no rebuttal, not counter examples, no citations, not even any philosophizing or self-referencing. Only an attack.

Please buy that book and read through it. If you really don't want to buy it, PM me and I'll buy you a copy.

If that's really what you love, you should check out this book.

For a good read on the stigma against mental health, please read Crazy by Pete Earley.

I like that "palms facing backwards with arms in front of body ventral blocking whilst bouncing side to side" move that these kinds of idiots like to do.

Ventral blocking: What Every BODY Is Saying

Great book.

You are not the first. It's an interesting book, if you haven't read it.

This book is a depressing, funny, weird and interesting look into psychopaths. It says that sociopath is used in the US mainly, and psychopath across the rest of the world, but essentially they mean the same thing.

Honestly read Michel Foucault's Discipline & Punish. It will change forever the way you see punishment.

Cut off their hands, stuff 'em in their mouths and string 'em up on a wheel to rot in the sun, I say!

> I don't have the potential or the want to be either of those things and it's horrible that you think all other people could be just like him.

You/they could, though. Research the Stanford Prison Experiment and Stanley Milgram. Both showed that, given the right set of circumstances, perfectly ordinary people are capable of extraordinary evil.

If you have time, read The Lucifer Effect for a more in-depth explanation of how it works.

Read The Tipping Point by Malcom Gladwell it illustrates the Broken Window Theory beautifully. Essentially if someone breaks a window on purpose in a building and you dont fix it other windows will be broken. If you clean it up no others will be damaged. This is used as both a metaphor and an example of how crime epidemics can be started and ended. Taking care of petty crime like graffiti or jumping the turnstile in the subway leads to lower crime rates overall, less murder, robbery, assault etc. i.e. clean up the window and others wont get broken.
