We have some sub-cultures in the US for whom taking life is of little or no consequence. I'll ignore those for this discussion...

From various articles through the years, I got no argument with the "civilization/domestication" ideas. FWIW, in WW II, city people weren't usually considered for training as snipers. Farm or ranch types, since they were far more likely to have slaughtered hogs or yearling calves for food. Wrung chicken necks for Sunday dinner. This is more "up close and personal" than even hunting deer, etc.
