I don't often like the conclusion either. But if you don't
understand your "primitive desires" you are going to be far more
"bound" to them than if you don't.
The EP/memes/war connection explains a lot, for example why Europe
has not had a major war in the last 60 years and why the IRA went out
of business. It tells you what won't work and what probably would
work with the current Islamic mess.
