I don't think the dog was saying "let him eat first." I think he was saying "be cool."

Labs are one of the more intelligent breeds often sharing food or letting others eat first. I've also witnessed that behavior in cats as a stray anomaly of character. Some animals seem personable rather than purely animalistic (contemplative rather than instinctual).

When you have most humans loving the fact that they are at the top of the food chain, that doesn't reek of earthenness, does it!

Gary Younge interviewing Richard Spencer, but when you have Nubian temples almost five times as old as their Western counterparts, then no.. things would not be exactly the same without African nations, or any other nation come to that, not existing.

Yes exactly.
I think animals, other mammals especially, make more efficient teachers than children.
Certainly they are more conscious of their actions than human adults too.

Humans are the most scrawny of self-consciousness all the way own the chain until you get to viruses. But animals are being a great help lately through memes and shamanism and such.

man will finally learn as man has always finally learned, as others are still learning, only to one day finally learn one by one or group by group as ones and groups finally learned after others finally learned all throughout history as humanity finally learns quite often and will probably continue to finally learn forever and ever different lessons and the same lessons in different ways.
