An Analysis of Warfare with a Scale-Invariant View of Human Foundational Psychological Traits.

Authors: Tariq Khan

Foundational human psychological traits are used to create a framework to understand political conflicts on the margin of these few traits. Recent major wars are examined in a similar context noting societal catastrophes from blind faith in technology as a tool to solve any problem, to philosophies that devalue individual human life for the gain of nebulous nation-states and tribal ideologies. The special value of human life and especially conscious minds is considered with the Vietnam War noted as a particular and shocking confrontation of technology versus the brute attrition of humans.
