The alpha male who rules over the band is, after all, a fixture of ape bands. It's that "made on an ape frame" again.
I want to make this very clear: throughout most of history, whether king or high priest, whether Emperor or conqueror, whether nobility or oligarchy humans were subjected to someone, and to those that worked for that person/worked under the authority of that person or group of people. It was, you might consider, the "natural order of things." Truly the natural order, since it comes from nature.
And this is what's important to know: Socialism ("democratic, purple, or pokadotted"—snort—) and communism are not different. They follow the ultimate rule of humanity of an elite who considers itself superior ruling over everyone else.
