The resulting modes of thinking and behavior patterns are independent of culture and technological level of development, part of the psyche and the behavior of the people. Particularly the confrontation with their respective counterparts was the trickiest and riskiest yet most rewarding challenge for our ancestors. Like all living things, man faces the task to secure his individual survival and that of his descendants; who fail this, which has no means of his genetic markers subsequent generations to inherit from. It is so only once naturally, when individuals pursue their selfish goals; altruistic behavior will only inherit if it serves their own survival or that of posterity. In the competition of the organisms, man, possessed with his comparatively weak bodily Constitution, once bad cards.

Clustering is an evolutionary advantage that has but also its price. It requires a necessary degree of cooperation and therefore the disclosure of own self-serving goals; by the members the individual must are classified in the group, whose Wohlfahrt carry, as well as observe applicable rules and standards.

That was the human psyche and his social skills with new challenges with the transition from the nomadism to the settled life of about twelve thousand years ago, onset of rapid population growth and the concomitant emergence of large companies. The social behavior of people was governed not only by the direct interaction, it was expanded regulatory and control mechanisms, carried out by anonymous administrations.
