Abstract: Aggression as a mechanism for conserving the human species has been incorporated into the human survival system since ancient times. The surrounding nature, the relationship between the members of the species, the relationship between them and the existing wild animals, related to the primary needs of food and shelter of man led to the development of the feeling of danger, the feeling of threat and therefore the need for a physical response attack and defense against elements that can destabilize life. Although these beginnings seem primitive to us today, the human being gaining supremacy over the administration of the planet a few centuries ago, they are still inscribed in our genes, caused by the time difference between the period of technological progress in human history and the beginning of the species’ existence the latter spanning a larger area of time compared to the modern era. However, in the short period of human civilization, more and more advanced mechanisms have been developed to inhibit its aggressive impulses, due to the new transformation into socio-intelligent, socially identifiable beings of the species. In the last period, the appearance and development of virtual social media has allowed man to hide his identity behind nicknames he has the opportunity to choose, thus giving permission to the aggressive mechanism inscribed in his genes to reappear. The paper aims to analyze the historical factors that determined the appearance and development of aggression, the transfer between legal norms for its inhibition and how it acts in the virtual space between members of the same digital community.
