Maybe stress causes people to become enemies
This is a big question, I know, and I won't be surprised if it attracts some flippant answers, but in a world with so many different moral, ethnic, religious, political and cultural groups it is a question that needs to be answered.
Should we be resigned to living in social structures that assume the existence of natural born enemies, as found among members of the animal kingdom, or can the human race develop to levels of co-operation that transcend this concept?
I sometimes find myself thinking of people who stress me out as enemies, but then I forgive them.
Maybe stress causes people to become enemies. Does anyone else think this?
