My answer's obvious after having read Brave New World. We're natural, as beings, so to attempt and control adaptation and other instinctive measures we have that helps ensure our survival as a species would be downright absurd. Sure there may be no criminal inhibitions or terminal illnesses, but it's those very negative aspects of our race that bind us together, for the good. They are responsible for us getting off our asses and doing something about them, so in the eyes of Sun Tzu, we should respect what can harm us, because it is the embodiment of the power that causes us to think the way we do today, albeit fatalistically for most. I'm not saying civilization (or lack thereof, in better words) should be in a constant struggle with itself, but learn from its surroundings and problems as to shed insight on a formidable solution.
