I can not resist to say something. THat something is innate or natural means that whatever to do with it must take into accout that this is innate or natural, no matter if this is morally positive or negative. Something natural can not be prohibited . Only can be regulated.
Take revenge for example. Revenge is something natural, an evolutionary instinct, that correspond with an evolutionarily stable strategy intended to impose, in the adversary, an evil greater than the benefit it may have taken with his offense, making further attacks to you unworthy. That works even If you loose in the process of revenge a lot of effort. Well that beyond the tribal life is deleterious for a civilized society, since retaliations can escalate etc. Many societies have the revenge ritualized or codified. Others create an institution, the justice, that judge and administer punishments to produce the same unworthiness of offenses, but avoid retaliations. So revenge by cool-blood killing an offender is punished as an horrible crime. But the law it does not punish the small retaliations in the workplace, between former friends, among couples in the day to day lves There is ample set of aspects where retaliation is permitted while it does not cause violence. It is logical: It would be comic to see people going to the justice like the children go to their parents saying "look my brother pushed me, punish it!" Well, with the hysteria of racism we are going in this nonsensical path. People want to be equally or more antiracist than the neighbor. Perhaps because people need to be united by some common beliefs and values, and when there is no belief nor values, they are fabricated, The more crazy they are, the more lies and half truths they imply, the more they work as elements of cohesion. See my other posts. The recently converted moral zealots of antiracism -or whatever is in fashion now- are scanning you.
