Why can't we all just get along?
Wait a minute. Everyone has a need to procreate, eat and sleep (granted). But does everyone have a need to feel powerful? What about those people that want o be dominated. Like in S&M;? Do those people have a need to feel powerful? I mean, even a person who is bulimic gets the urge to eat.
I think you make my point when you say "even a bulimic gets the urge to eat". I would say, "even a submissive gets the urge to control". A submissive individual is unlikely to react and therefore wouldn't be a valid cause in the argument of "Why can't we all just get along?" Unless you're attempting to change the argument to "Why can't any of us (except those in control of submissive's) just get along, I stand by my original claim that the reason we can't "All" get along has to do with our individual need to feel as though we possess power of others.
