Q: If man is more than just an animal how come the Alpha male syndrome is so prominent in our society?
Females also display this syndrome as well.
A: We’re not more than animals, and anyone who thinks that is deluding themselves. Need proof? Rape, murder, war, assault, abuse, etc. If we were better than animals we wouldn’t engage in any of that crap, but we do…so we’re not.
Alpha male syndrome (as you call it) is part of every mammal’s biological heritage and can’t be cured. It’s something we just have to learn to live with and control.
