Easy. Look at baboon or chimp behavioral psychology. I am convinced that
as we grow from infants to adults we go through behavioral evolutions
symbolic of different stages in our species evolution from primitive
apes, just as our fetal biological evolution is analogous to our
evolution from one celled animals up to our present stage.

Schoolyard bullies exihibit classic alpha male behaviors, and enforce
genetic purity to the average to prevent possible genetically weak
individuals from impinging on the troops gene pool and thereby
threatening its survival.
