What if by fulfilling our need for alphas through movies and video games we're actually substituting those for real life alphas, reducing our psychological need for them by fulfilling that need through stories?

We've always had stories of alphas to inspire men. Paul Bunyan, Odysseus, King Arthur, Robin Hood, etc. Movies are just another way of telling those stories.

But theyakre a much bigger part of life now, and less historically inspired.
