Lesson on Monopoly of Force

When I watched this video (via Dooce) I thought of it as a lesson on the concept of Monopoly of Force. Lions are the “King of the Jungle”, right? Don’t they represent government? The buffalo are the numerous “armed citizens”. The crocs must be criminals since they hide under the water like that and then disappear again when their opportunity slips away.

Yeah, I’m not normal.

  1. That is a cool video.

    Lions, buffalo, crocs– so what are the human observers?

    Where there are grazers (those producing from raw materials) there will be predators. They said that on Discovery last night in a documentary on undersea micro environments. I think it applies to human society as well.
