Hmm.

Is this sort of leading up to the idea of reputation?

I remember hearing that modern group size is large and people move around the globe such that there is less consequence for freeriding / cheating / defecting than there used to be. Apparently, psychopaths / cheaters / defectors / free-riders are more common, now? Or psychopaths are running the show? Something along these lines...
