Episode details

There was no such thing as “war” in the Stone Age.

Only through certain social advancements was war made possible by the early states.

This episode covers:

* History’s first war, first empire, and first fully centralized state.

* The art of “statecraft” as an extension of the dominance hierarchy.

* The fissure in male psychology as explained by Nietzsche’s Master and Slave Morality

* Why we can blame bread (and rice) for the suppression of masculinity

* How the Us vs. Them paradigm is constructed, and why it was necessary
