The word "Baboon" is used as a derogatory term for people who do not follow social or cultural codes, and to describe those who engage in mob mentality, who do not exercise their own judgement, who have no tolerance for opinions other than their own, and who are unable to accept abnormal behaviors. Nevertheless, the actual baboon is such an altruistic and clever primate. This work examines the connection and tension between these different meanings.
