I not only agree with you, but I think that many of society's big questions can be answered in the animal world. My wife asks me why our four sons are fighting, (with my 17 & 14 yr old it is called school sponsored wrestling, and guess what, it is all boys) and I tell her they are just practicing for adulthood in which they will fight for food or breeding rights, she rolls her eyes and tells me to shut up. But who goes to college on a scholarship, the wrestler or the Star Wars enthusiast? And which will have the gorgeous and successful wife? (just for the record, I am not a "sports" guy). I am guessing the guy who wears the pointy ears is not going to be prom king either.
I was called to my youngest sons grade school (5 yrs old, kindergarten) because he was in trouble, he actually stomped in some slush and it splashed on another little boys pants. I was not happy about this, nor was I shocked. I was told our school has a zero tolerance policy towards violence, and this is his last warning. I asked just how they plan to unwind a couple of million years of evolution and they don't seem to have an answer quite yet. This "we are different" stuff doesn't address the facts. Yeah, we have big brains and manners, so do dolphins. Mothers and fathers have a huge responsibility to raise offspring in a way that they can be successful, doesn't matter if you walk on two legs, four legs or swim a lot.
Btw, manners is the human word for bite inhibition . Look no further than Hollywood for a good example of resource hoarding and guarding when animals are allowed to live without rules. But I digress....
My sincere apologies to you if you are a Star Wars enthusiast and wear pointy ears.
