Born to Rage: Inside the Warrior Gene w/ Henry Rollins

Interesting . . . . This documentary on rage and the supposed "warrior gene" features Henry Rollins, one of the coolest (and formerly angriest) guys alive, comes from National Geographic Explorer. What a perfect choice of narrator. More, more, and more on the warrior gene hypothesis.

Born to Rage: Inside the Warrior Gene

Born to Rage: Inside the Warrior GeneWere you born to rage? Is the need for anger management in your genes? Many, like ex-punk rocker Henry Rollins, have struggled with feelings of aggression their entire lives, and National Geographic is on a mission to figure out why.

Scientists are investigating a single gene – dubbed the warrior gene – that has been associated with violent behavior, raising the disturbing possibility that some people are Born to Rage.

Henry tests this theory on a colorful crew: outlaw bikers, mixed martial arts fighters, Buddhist monks and former gang members.

DNA testing reveals which of them – including possibly Henry Rollins himself – carries the warrior gene. The results provide an extraordinary insight into human behavior.
