If alpha-male behavior (dominating, hierarchical, authoritarian) is, at some level, natural, it’s also possible that democracy too is natural.
These contending impulses—the authoritarian personality and the democratic personality—may be competing evolutionary strategies that, in fact, take up habitation in different parts of the human brain, contending with one another.
It’s true that in the animal kingdom there are hierarchies (as among chimps), but bees are curiously democratic.
Did you know that?
Bees do it (democracy), so why can’t you and me do it?
Maybe what’s most natural for human organization is not kings and queens and centralized planning, but democracy and dispersed decision making.
Or maybe our curious existential ability-to-choose means we can be done with the natural; we can do whatever we want.
So what do we want to do?
I vote for the way of bees. We can vote with our feet; they with their wings.
This is the way of freedom.
