" the genteel died first. "

in a pond nr you there lies an ancient evil. Carnivorous tadpoles. It's been observed that in a community of algae-eating tadpoles there lies within a disturbing latent menace equal to your worst nightmares. Build into the genetic gene pool, no pun intended a few of the population carry a dormant gene. Under conditions of stress, this gene activates and literally turns that individual into a monster. No full moon required, drought will do it. The deviant changes both behaviorally and physically. It grows huge sharp prominent teeth and starts the cannibalise it neighbours. The salient point is that only a few tadpoles carry the deviant gene and under favourable conditions, all the little tadpoles seem the same. They all just busy themselves eating alga, living peacefully and slowly turning into little frogs. Given an evaporating pool, however, only the cannibals survive to leave the pond. Meat provides the energy to develop early before the pool desiccates.
Deviance as a survival mechanism exits in nature. I see no reason to doubt that it exists in humans too and for the same reason. What we term evil may well be a genetic survival mechanism. To quote a phrase I read in a book about prisoners in a Gulag " the genteel died first. "
