We have heard of how evolutionary psychology predicts a society will engage
in warfare when there is a sufficient level of collective pessimism about
the future.


OK, sure that makes sense in the traditional definition of warfare.  But
now, if we embrace the notion that modern warfare is primarily memetic and
the battlefield is digital, the weapons entirely digital where none of the
participants actually perish, can we extend traditional evolutionary
psychology to now?
