Alpha and Omega are actually very close.
Alpha runs society from the top – is immune to the rules because, mostly, he is the rule. Omega operates outside of society, so, in a way, he´s also immune to the rules and micromanages his own universe. Both are ruthless, as in, I dont care about you, I do my own thing.
The beta is whats in between, the guy who follows the rules and wants to please his superiors.
Omega doesnt give a fuck. He usually hates the game.
Alpha doesnt give a fuck. He usually loves the game.
There are a lot of times when this omega comes from nowhere and steals the pot. No one saw him coming. A lot of breakthoughs have happened that way, driven by a sole individual who had a vision and somehow managed to score it big.
Alphas have the risk of becoming self indulgent when in power. The stuff is given easily to them. Become dumb dinosaurs. Think of GOP.
Omegas have the risk of becoming too excentric and mentally-fucked once they get the power to realize their vision. Think of Michael Jackson.
Beta is the realm of mediocrity / supportive roles. Each of those guys at the top needs an army of very responsible men fixing their mistakes and keeping the machine running. Betas become one with a cause that is not their own, they choose to belong and not to lead.
All are needed, mind you.
