On "Alpha Wolves"

So there’s this image we get of the big bad alpha male, constantly keeping power through conflict, right? Not… really. Came across this article on the Twitters, wondering if it’ll make you think. http://mobile.nytimes.com/2015/06/06/opinion/tapping-your-inner-wolf.html

Relatively recent studies also suggest that omegas aren’t the bottom of the totem pole, but actually valued members of the pack as peace keepers. A lot of the misconceptions come from a study done years ago on wolves that were kept in captivity, thus horribly skewing the results. Yet folks clamped onto it, even in the scientific community.
