There is no evidence that a chain of chemical reactions in the brain causes warmongering behaviour.

Human beings are moral agents, responsible for their behaviour. Read: "Insanity, The Idea And It's Consequences" by Thomas Szasz; if you want evidence of the foolishness of the evasion of personal responsibility by humans.

The evasion of the fact of the phenomenal liberty, self-determination, and self-responsibility; the very existence of themselves as moral agents; this evasion of responsibility by humans delivers trouble.

When you vote in an election: YOU vote. The very existence of YOUR vote requires that you vote. If someone were to coerce you to vote against your preference, it is no longer your preference (though it is strictly your vote under adverse circumstances- you have the option of refusing despite the consequences).

The Existence of your free vote requires moral agency. No one has dis-proven the existence of free will. Physics shows that at the basic level nature appears indeterminate as if freedom and self-determination (you call this: "going by itself") are the building blocks of nature.

A Higgs field would still be built from 3 is 1 type self-referent, self-measuring, self-determining, uncertain due to free-choosing, more basic pattern.
