No, the key point to you is that, once again, as always, you get to sit up in your ivory tower and glibly pontificate on mattes about which you really know nothing. No one goes into combat for the first time knowing what the experience will be like.
Agree with what ?
I agree with you. We are nothing but social animals. Not more advanced but more sophisticated. Social forces are still the predominant factor in the way we choose to live . Over time, the focus changes, but we as humans are still plagued with the same attributes we have always had; except there is a change in social structures, political power shifts, and of course the scapegoat always changes.
The need for power and social stature remains....perhaps as a survival technique. Sure, we have greater knowledge of communication, technology, our own bodies and science in general . However, our knowledge is infantile in terms of the cosmos( let's call it that).
Gendercide exists, as well as famine, human trafficking, exploitation of the poor, appropriation of land and resources by force. Yep...we tend to pay attention to what is politically correct. After all, we still want to feel good about who we are right?!
Things are as they have always been.

Oh ! You agree with the insult and/or the irrelevant comment about my supposed lack of combat experience.
Sorry, I thought you were saying something significant with respect to the OP.
I do agree with not denying possibilities !
Moral development is no more than social adaptation.
Science and morals have nothing to do with one another.
In my view our knowledge is in it's infancy, since we realize how little we know. We have only set foot on the moon, have had robots/probes land in Mars and Venus, and had intentional impact with Jupiter. Also...it wasn't until this century that we realized the universe is expanding. It took us ( Voyager 1) 36 years to finally exit the solar system . I'm no expert..but maybe you know something I don't . Sorry I took so long to reply. I was away on travel.
