Seriously, it's the fault of women.

Stone age high status males were more attractive to women (for good 
reasons).  Thus successful status seekers got more nookie and kids.  QED, 
successful status seekers are our ancestors (for the most part).  That *we* 
seek status is no surprise.

But you can't do it openly.  You have to just incidentally kill something 
that will feed the tribe for a week and be very modest about it.
