There are some pseudo-scientific discussions regarding a so-called 'alpha' 'beta' model for human relationships. I'm well aware that this model is fatally flawed, but does the same criticism apply to all forms of dominance hierarchies as well? And if so, what best describes relative human status, Egalitarianism? And finally, does the current description of Human characteristic apply historically to primordial humans as well? When did these characteristics evolve?
