If you look at human society, it is very easy, of course, to compare our warfare and territoriality with the chimpanzee. But that's only one side of what we do. We also trade, we intermarry, we allow each other to travel through our territory. There's an enormous amount of cooperation.
Frans de Waal

Thomas P.M. Barnett

For a time during the early settlement of this country peace and goodwill prevailed, only to be followed later by violent and relentless warfare.
