  • I just Googled “government of the animal kingdom” and you should see some of the blarticles (blogicles?) that popped up!

    Jeez!...Oh-Man! Police state this...Become the Alpha male that...Oh, Lordy, lord, lord, lord! Do you think the word "supremacist" can be used to describe anything good?

    Anyway...what I was trying to research was the particulars of, simply that, the government of animals. You know...they travel in packs and herds and flocks or whatever and there is always one more dominant than the rest. One is always the protector. Females care for the young ones...males fight and rule...together they teach, together they honor the elderly....From what I’ve gathered, animals have been successfully governing for ages. I wanted to learn more about that. I wanted to learn about nature’s government rule.

    Instinctual, inbred...visceral.

    Mostly...I read about carnage.

    I stopped Googling...

    and Worrying.

    I went back to sorting buttons...

    Back to my form of prayer...and apathy.
