Primal Urges: Love Lessons Inspired By David Petraeus [EXPERT]
What's more powerful than the leaders of the mightiest military on earth? Primal, procreative love!

What's more powerful than the leaders of the mightiest military on earth? Who has more leverage than a top military commander with millions of troops at his disposal? What leads the strongest, most logical men to willfully destroy their own lives and leave their country vulnerable?

Romantic love, with all of its primal, procreative urges.

 

Romantic love — the kind that urges you to meld with a like-minded mate. The force that inspires you to write untraceable letters to a forbidden lover. The irresistible urge for which you will risk your family, your security, your country and your life!

Thank you, David Petraeus for the reminder.

Of course, there is more to the Patraeus saga than we are being told. Still, the forces of evolution (or insert your own forces here) care for little else beyond the continuation of the human species (or insert your own motivation here). Even your own dearly held values can easily give way to the power of attraction that has roots in romantic, procreative love. This is at the heart of the matter here.
