2. There are similarities.

Alpha male mates with whichever female he chooses.

Alpha male shows little interest in offspring.

Alpha male has an emotional strength, radiates self confidence if not physical strength, while he may be as dumb as a brick.

Alpha male relies on bluff, bluster and if needed, violence to maintain his dominant position.

The rest of the monkeys do what the Alpha wants. No backchat tolerated.

Alpha male does not get on with females that show alpha characteristics.

Alpha male dominates the food supply in times of scarcity.

Alpha male curries favours with other, subservient males, but any potential rivals for the Alpha position are attacked and harassed relentlessly to keep them in their place.

Eventually, the Alpha male is beaten in a fight and another male becomes the Alpha. The other monkeys shun the original Alpha.


Guess that proves it. Trump (impeached) is a damn brutal and dumb chimp!

4. Yes, it's clear as day, but they're okay without freedom of choice.

They like the order of it and being told what to do.

5. The rest of the story is very interesting

There are two types of leaders, the males who lead by consensus and developing a network of allies and the ones who bully their way into power. This covers what happens to both types:
