    Genetically, bonobos (a type of chimpanzee), are our closest relatives in the animal kingdom. We did not evolve from them. We share a common ancestor.

    Give it about fifty thousand years and we will find them to be as traumatized and discontented as we are now.

    Closer than what? Fish, spiders or some other non mammal species? Then yes indeed. Humans are closer to chimps.
