The program was excellent, because it demonstrated the similarities between us and our nearest relatives through a series of experiments. However, I was shocked when the commentator suggested using alpha male traits in day-to-day functioning. I feel we have evolved beyond the primate hierarchical society, and modern man should focus on effective non-aggressive communication, family and organizational structures that encourage the input of all members, and conflict solving. We've had enough bloodshed from alpha males seizing control of societies to the detriment of the community.
Can anyone provide the date this program aired? I know it was mid-August 2013. Appreciate any response. Thanks.
