The tough in human and vertical hierarchy response is probably 40 percent viral and retroviral (RNA viral for human DNA).
Bad viral are studied for disease causing ability including lethal capability.
From “Evolving Ourselves,” nice or good viral providing a symbiotic relationship for 60 percent human DNA, probably exist, but no funds for study are forthcoming because pathology-causing fatal epidemics are attempted to stop quickly
Strong leadership probably need viral participation in human concerns.
Should there be a “tough, good guy” and it’s plausible there are many–they would come across as “saviors” solving problems badly needing answers, and a “stick with-it” attitude and resolve to make it workable–solving our pressing problems.
