    When ants, bees and wolves have schools, churches, courts, policemen,
    presidents, kings, congresses, elections, political parties,
    fraternities, sororities, newspapers, magazines, movies, TV, sports,
    celebrities, internets and moq.discuss groups, let me know. Hardly
    'arbitrary' or 'expedient' distinctions from the animal kingdom. The
    proper MOQ social level value pattern for your animal friends is a zoo.
    The only obfuscated understanding of social patterns is your own. :-)
