Human beings closest genetic cousins are said to be the apes. Some are capable of empathy but others resort to violent actions, destruction and ruthless killing.

Our social behavior can best be compared with two species of apes: chimpanzees and bonobos, which look like smaller, more upright chimps.

Despite their physical similarities, the two species behave very differently. Bonobos live in a relatively peaceful matriarchy; when conflicts do arise, instead of fighting they often use sexual activity to resolve them, defusing the aggression with friendly physical contact.
