I’m reminded of our primitive ancestors when I see and hear of the extensive arrangements being made to celebrate Great Britain’s Olympic medal success. The tribal drums beat , the feet march to raucous shouts from the jubilant crowd. The great warriors are back in the bosom of the nation, all else is forgotten in the frenzy of our triumph.
Is it not curious that in our own behaviour we see little of the traits of our distant ancestors? Could it be we are not as civilised as we suppose?
