I have a different take, which is that each character represents different emotions, possibly related to Christopher Robin.
Pooh: Happiness or hope. Friendship.
Kanga: Caring or empathy.

Human evolution has favored groups because if you are not a 700-pound grizzly bear, there is safety in numbers. Groups work better if people cooperate in them, and generally aren't trying to hurt each other. To this end, people have a natural tendency to believe in something higher than themselves, whether it be God, or country, or family. Belief in something higher than oneself will cause a person to act not in his own self-interest, but in the interest of the group.

In case you didn't know, this is a take-off on...
It is a 1961 Twilight Zone episode about a small child with god-like powers who terrorizes a small town.
I read the original science fiction short story before I saw the Twilight Zone episode that was adapted from it. When they remade the TV Twilight Zone Series in the early 2000s, they did a sequel to the original episode 40 years later. Bill Mummy reprised his role as the "monster" with god-like powers, and Cloris Leachman reprised her role as his mother. I thought that this was a brilliant idea.
Ironically, another 20 years have passed. There is yet another new Twilight Zone series on CBS All Access. It is time for another sequel. It could set a record for having a 60-year story arc. Bill Mummy is still alive, although Cloris Leachman died in January from a combination of stroke and COVID. She played in "The Croods" animated movie that I liked and the very recently released "The Croods 2: A New Age."
