based on a meerkats one.
Meerkats are very smart animals and have a sophisticated structure in society. They live in a matriarchal society which means the female has control and in this case there can only be one. There also is a dominant male he is the one who has to fight all the other males, it goes the same for the females too. The dominant male and females then mate. When the pups come, any pups that are from a subordinate female will be attacked by the dominant female. She will kill many, however about 2% will keep on living. That is also why meerkats can’t rely on heritage because most of them are brothers and sisters.
Is this a better way to live work and play. Firstly they live simpler lives because they don’t have to work for money to survive and there are less things to fight over. Secondly they live underground which is not so destructive on the environment. But one thing that is wrong is that only the dominant females have pups. I think that everyone should have the right of having a baby of their own.
Although there are reasons for and against having a human society like the Meerkats one I believe that the human society that we have is better, however not all societies are equal.
