This site will address several issues that appear continuously in human history and prehistory. They are the issues of war and peace and the distribution of power and wealth between human groups or societies and within societies. This blog will discuss various dimensions of these issues which seem to have been present in one or another form in most societies, large and small throughout history. Discussions on this blog will trace the origins of conflict and cooperation between human individuals and groups and the origins of inequality in political power and distribution of material goods and the accumulation of unequal wealth at various times and places in history.

Future articles and essays will discuss both moral and practical aspects of the human dilemma throughout history. Some articles will contain discussion of the world’s social, economic, and poltical systems and ideologies of the 21st century. Others will seek to trace the origins of these institutions and there relative effects on human well being in different places and times.
