— This is not new, but it’s likely news to you as it was to me: A little over thirty years ago, a troop of baboons in Kenya lost all its hyper-aggressive alpha males when they all died from eating tuberculosis-tainted meat. The remaining males were a lot less aggressive towards each other, and not aggressive at all towards the females in the troop — and the culture change became permanent. If baboons can mellow out, maybe humans can too?
