"Collectively controlled perceptions (CCPs)..."

I haven't reread your paper thoroughly, but just a few thoughts:

=> How might Maynard Smith's frequency-dependent effects, i.e.,
    evolutionarily stable strategies (ESSs), relate to your
    analyses of CCPs? For example, if everyone acts like a
    dove, then hawks surely can flourish, but once too many
    hawks abound, then their own frequency limits the advantage...

=> The power inbalance of children to parents would seem
    to be a critical basis for the continuation of the
    inequalities you cite across adult populations.

=> And related to the second point, the role of internal
    conflict in the development of "personalities" might
    benefit by analogy to the processes observed in
    conflicting CCPs across different bodies.

Best regards,
