The bee world is conformity plus. Humans apparently need freedom of choice. They can conform or whatever. Consequences are not on the list of concerns. Maybe this has to do with the “buzzing confusion of reality” that David Brook mentions on the opinion page in the New York Times 11-27-09.
Two examples: a Philippino politician thinks nothing of slaughtering 57 people in his way without an exit strategy. A DC wannabe couple forces their way into a White House party armed with a wing and a prayer. Were these good ideas at the time?
Now this bee has ventured into the reality of the human condition. Have I become just another wanna bee? Maybe I should think more about this freedom thing. To bee or not to bee.
