In turn, this would have intensified the evolutionary processes that were making for stronger and more effective conscience functions. Thus, a person who was usually prone to bullying, but was socially sensitive and could control himself, would have won out handily over a similar person with less effective self-control. On this basis I have proposed that starting about a quarter of a million years ago there may well have been a dramatic increase in the rate of evolution of our moral capacity to internalize rules and judge ourselves by them to see what we can get away with as we try to build useful social reputations.
