[Day 615] Breaking news: monkeys aren’t better than humans

Today, I watched a segment of a TED Talk that was touted as “monkeys rejected unequal payments”. I immediately got the vision that when two monkeys were paid unequally, both the one that was paid more and the one that was paid less would protest. This vision made me happy, thinking that in a society free of money, primates would be able to look out for each another.

But then I watched the video and was disappointed. While the money that was paid in cucumbers protested in vain, the one with grapes continued to do their job blissfully — just like most humans.

What a shame. I guess monkeys are no better than humans after all.
