Self control is one of the crucial mechanisms that had to improve in humans,to enable culture to succeed.
Self control is an inner capacity,limited energy expense,and so on,to alter our behaviour,override responses,and enable one to change one’s behaviour to fit in with the requirements of the system so that it will work.And then free will,again,we can see continuity with animals,thier choice and agency in other creatures,and free will perhaps a more advanced form of agency that evolved out of that,and more adapted to working culture using meaningful reasons and operating within the context of the shared group.
It enables the human animal to relate to it’s social and cultural enviroment.

And as humans we can be somewhat more than animals,control our behaviour  in advanced ways,need to make the system work.And once it works for us then it has provided the immense benefits  that it has.
