    Does morality aid you in repressing your baser instincts(原始本能)? Does your religious creed assist you in being a better citizen by inhibiting your primitive drives and instincts?

    How is it that, in fact, our baser instincts(原始衝動) drive us to practically explode with rage over the dirty laundry on the floor, or the third glass of milk spilt in the course of ten minutes, or the clothing shoved hastily in the drawer ...
