Human nature is mutable. Have you not heard of nature and nurture? It's social science 101. If every institution socializes children for hierarchy, of course you're going to see that side of human nature around you. You can't make grand claims about human nature based on the naked eye. That type of anti-intellectualism is a serious burden to debate in this country.

With this "human nature" mantra, you're starting to sound like A Smith and his "tax rates". Sometimes "common sense" is irrational. On Easter Island, it was "common sense" to cut down every tree to keep a big-head-statue competition going.
