The male children of the ancient Spartans of Greece and the Sambia of New Guinea are exposed to
programmed mental maltreatment and physically abusive practices. Through these exposures and societal narratives
enforced by coercion and intimidation, aggressive warriors ready to fight to maintain their engrained desire to dominate or
fulfill the military goals of the community are produced. Unfortunately, the indoctrination process appears to suppress the
capacity for emotional empathy, further facilitating aggressive impulses that are unimpaired due to the lack of orientation
to commonly accepted moral values. The implications of the indoctrinations are discussed with suggestions as to what can
be done to promote more desirable traits during growth and development.
