Debunking The Herd Animal Theory About Humans

Postby Fixed Cross » Thu Apr 29, 2021 1:27 am

animals dont become the dominant species on a planet in herds, they come in packs and very large ones. Humans are extreme predators, in groups so large that herd-qualities become bred, but never pure meekness, pacificity; one need omg to look at a city, a human 'herd' so called, and what happens in it to see we are not talking about sheep, but about wolves and worse.

So... dont believe in group-therapy boys. And dont believe in any social-ism. It's just a sneaky extra predatory layer to our insidious pack.

I thought humans originally acted as tribes.
Small but close knit societies.
Like a mini version of a city-state.
Later they formed gangs, religions, etc.
Memes that found many hosts.

K: don't worry dan... fixed can only come to this theory by completely
ignoring all of human history...but that is how the right create theories...
by simply ignoring the facts and spouting whatever comes out of their ass....

Yes, that is in line with what Im saying. These tribes were fed by their hunters, and later on they included shepherds.

The idea that humans are herd-animals as Ive often heard, is misleading. Herds do not behave the way humans do.

Humans are by and large group animals, but not per definition.
The strong act as they may, the weak accept what they must.

ive always said that no matter how many layers of paint, or how many streets they pave etc, we're all really still in the same old jungle. the window dressing might shift around a bit to give us an appearance of civilization, but underneath we're still all just trying to eat each other. that's life man.
You see...a pimp's love is very different from that of a square.


Dating a stripper is like eating a noisy bag of chips in church. Everyone looks at you in disgust, but deep down they want some too.
