Your argument is a non-starter because social forces cannot be equated with psychological forces. In short, group behavior cannot be anthropomorphized as a variant of the behavior of individuals. Any one of us who considers themselves to be a "moral law abiding citizen" could find themselves killing "their country's enemies" in time of war with little or no remorse. The fact that there are power structures which either regulate or channel social forces is par for the course of human history. Technological "advance" is no indicator of "social advance" in a world of natural
unequal distribution of wealth.
Only the Western philosopher who is willing leave his comfortable armchair and relinquish his per capita
twenty six fold consumption of the world's resources relative to the poorest nature, is qualified to attempt to preach the pursuit of "social advance". Are you ?
