basically you can break down human impulse into these few categories.
1. Procreation - human males are driven, to pass their genes forward to the next generation, frequently at the expense of other males. Human females are looking for a male who provide on the other two impulses, resource acquisition such as food, shelter and protection from predators, including other males.
2 Protection - Humans seek protection from danger, as all life does, by both being strong independently but more importantly grouping together to pool their resources and protect the entire group, community, tribe, village, relgion, ect. The advantages of those are that many humans can more efficiently protect the others when working together. The disadvantage is that humans will segregate and identify themselves in these groups and aggressively defend the group and strike out at other groups they see as a threat, even if they are not. You can see this today in tribal, religious and ethnic violence the world around.. More importantly, by grouping them selves they will seek resources a sa group and procreate, mostly, within the group.
3 Resource acquisition - Humans need a few basic resources to survive. These being shelter, food and mates. the group that is most successful with resource gathering will have the best tools with which to protect the group, find and maintain mates and will also frequently be the most aggressive toward other groups.
As noted, these three aspects are highly inter linked and are fundamental to how humans have developed over the eons. Social development is the most interesting as we can see a number of failed social groups still existing today. as noted by anthropologists the cool thing about lost tribes that practice the old ways is they are a window on how e went wrong not how we were right. Old laws, such as the 10 commandments or sharia law give guide posts on how to live our lives and guidance the social morals of what is acceptable and what is not. Do not murder, do not steal do not commit adultery and so forth, the problem with these old ways is the fact they are old. They need to be updated to match the current social structures and be adapted. We can see this happening in the Catholic group by their leader, Pope Francis, revisiting what is means to be moral and what is means to be "catholic".
This is just a long ramble of some of the things that have been floating around the back burners of my brain but the direction society is going is backwards, not forwards and it scares me greatly and I put this up in an attempt to begin examining why we do what we do and more importantly see why the leaders of our groups (many but not all) want to go to an old, discarded social structure.
