Comment This isnt domestication, (Score 4, Insightful) 95

and it wont result in dogs 2.0

It wasnt just proximity to humans that cause the first domestication event in wolves (or really, several parallel events), but conditions that also resulted animals with less aggression, which was then amplified by captive breeding.

this event isnt structured to provide that reduction in aggression.
but it will provide an increase in guile.

this isnt dogs 2.0
this is coyotes 2.0

-"In 1960 whites were 90% of the country. The census bureau recently estimated that whites already account for less than two-thirds of the population and will be a minority by 2050.
