  1. Leaders want wars because it causes their followers to suppress doubts about their leadership while the war is in progress.

    In the US, there is a financial incentive to go to war because defense contractors can make a profit.

    Single men want war to display their fitness and possibly to find a mate or grab resources from the defeated enemy.

    There is also Henson’s “Evolutionary Psychology, Memes and the Origin of War”.
