Chaque dépression a un sens de Johann Hari
Baboons are locked in their hierarchy. They need somebody at the bottom to beat up and humiliate. [...] But humans do have a choice. We can find practical ways to dismantle hierarchies and create a more equal place, where everybody feels they have a measure of respect and status. Or we can build up hierarchies and ramp up the humiliation—as we are doing today. When we do that, many of us will feel we are being pushed down, almost physically, and many of us will show signs of submission. We’ll lower our heads and our bodies and silently say: Leave me alone. You beat me. I can’t take this any more.
