The Right has been pushing biological-determinist 'Evolutionary Psychology" for many years now to justify racism, sexism, and war via the "it's human nature and you can't change human nature" shit.

Humans are not "inherently" violent. In fact the popular notion that one needs to "let of steam" is actually bad, it actually makes you more likely to be violent.
