From NPR's Science Friday a talk on ant societies and superorganisms by Edward O. Wilson and Bert Hölldobler.
E.O Wilson on the dominant role of females in ant societies:
I am a feminist too, but ant societies are liberalism run amok
On the success of the socialist model in ants:
Marx was right about socialism. He just applied it to the wrong species
Bert Hölldobler on within group and outgroup recognition:
Maybe we need to maintain some level of xenophobia otherwise we won't enjoy a football match.
What a fascinating talk! Do Listen.
