Why do we seem to need heroes and villians?


Why do we so lustfully cling to this all-or-nothing mindset that the world has heroes and villians, "good guys" and "bad guys". Are we really too afraid to look beyond this elementary paradigm and actually use our brains and do some work to see reality as it is, lying on a continuum wherein the majority of us fall in or near th middle with, yes, a few outliers on either end? Guaran-damn-tee ya that in a couple or few months, the Fenway Faithful will once again senselessly chant "Yankees suck!" forgetting today's comradery in favor of rivalry and opposition. Why do we crave conflict??
