Democracy is a big deal for human-beings these days, but have you ever considered how other animals build up their societies? Most people picture the wilderness as a place where only the strongest survive, a place in which raw power means more than wisdom, but is this really true? In fact, animals aren't so different from human beings. Yes, they do tend to get quite violent when it comes to protecting themselves or winning power, but so do humans. We might not have claws or amazing speed, but blessed with a dangerous intelligence we create deadly bombs and start wars with other countries, something we don't see in the animal kingdom. Humans create political alliances and rely on the group to survive; so do animals. But who has the best deal?
