What if we look at our gang as of the playing out of archetypal imprinting. They can't elect a leader and conspire to take down a mastadon, so words become their spears, and the person they wish to take down is not given the courtesy of being seen as a human with a viewpoint and feelings, nor given a chance to express themselves. It's Lord of the Flies time here, and it's an outlet furiously enjoyed by the participants.
