"From evolution's perspective, as long as the group survives, it doesn't matter that individuals must suffer.  It's a cruel and brutal calculus." (dnate.com)

I do not trust this part, repeated 2x thus far on the site, though, "We're not hardwired to be interested in the reasons behind character." -- is that not the whole of psychology? But the desire to know why someone does what they do, is not hardwired? Through epigenetics, could it not end up being?

That out of context portion is from this:

"We like to see character in conflict, but we have no interest in the underlying causes for why people have the character they do.  That woman is an FBI agent.  That man is a serial killer.  Watch the conflict!  Why is the man a serial killer?  Who cares!  Boring!  We're not hardwired to be interested in the reasons behind character."
