In tiny forager bands, those that price equality yet are able to settle difficulties violently do greater than those that aren’t; in huge farming societies, those that worth hierarchy and are much less keen to take advantage of violence do most sensible; and in large fossil-fuel societies, the pendulum has swung again towards equality yet even additional clear of violence.

During the preliminary bombardment for the Third Battle of Ypres (often called Passchendaele) in July 1917, the Royal Artillery alone fired 4 283 550 rounds – at a cost of £22 211 389 14s 4d (Terraine 1992: 218); during the whole battle, the Germans discharged some 18 000 000 shells (Werth 1997: 329).
