You are correct. I cite the communists only as a recent culture to exploit violence for change because most of us can't remember that far back. In "The Alphabet Versus The Goddess" by Leonard Schlain, he makes the case for male dominated agressive behaviour based on the appearance of written language. Personally I feel the point is actually where the Ego became dominant over the Id which in my view, lead to written communication.
