I'm inclined to think it's innate James. My kids were always hurling things at each other if they thought they were being treated unequally.

Sweet the coming on
Of grateful evening mild; then silent night
With this her solemn bird and this fair moon,
And these the gems of heaven, her starry train.

Off the top of my head I would guess that the advantage would be that an individual has a better chance of surviving if the tribe as a whole survives. Therefore you have to be fair with things like distribution of food, clothing, firewood, etc. among its members. Interesting to think about.
