    The question is, how could so many who knew the f better – ignore it so well?

    Pardon my thinking for a moment in a Freudian vein.  But perhaps we humans have a death instinct, aka “Thanatos”. Obviously we have “Eros” a drive toward sexuality. A pro-reproduction drive clearly is something likely to be passed on in our DNA.

    But how would a death instinct be passed on by the process of evolution, in the case of our DNA or our culture either one?  One would think it would not, unless it could somehow make at least some of the people who have it (as a strong characteristic) better able to survive to reproduction.

    Does that happen? Idk.

    But, also, what about the death instinct surviving as a stealth characteristic?

    Anyway, assuming for a moment that we humans have a death instinct, we could hypothesize that this instinct is more activated in those who seem intent on denying that we are responsible for the the death and suffering of multitudes of people in our present and especially in our future.

    Just a thought.
