even b4 humans, apes lived in tribes. we started out as tribes. tho some fought, most cooperated w/in group, at the least.

we’re a violent species cuz we descended from chimps not gorillas. and chimps evolved cuz they made war and were brutal about it. they took over other troop’s territory. they tear the arms off their opponents, and beat them to death w them.
but advances were all based on cooperation, including cooperating in hunting and defense.
