    Ah - see. . .all the little busy workers slaving away for the queen. At least some of them get to have some sex in their life - talk about domination.

    For ants may be but obviously not for aunts. The last ones will prefer sex on the back seat before socialism.

    Anyway, I wish "socialism" wasn't such a complicated term.

    Socialism will only work for creatures who are extraordinarily simplistic, or extraordinarily intelligent.

    We fall somewhere in the middle, which is why Capitalism is generally our best fit.

    I don't fall in the middle. I'm both.

    I put it couldnt...I am not a socialist nor do I believe socialism is a good thing....Socialism breeds dictators and every socialist society that I can think of had just that....but more importantly it makes people lazy...there is nothing to shoot for...
    Having said that I am for some socialized programs...that keep our misery level far above other countries in the world....after all we are the RICHEST by far

    Technically then, you fall in the middle (if you average it out).

    Nah, the possible range is circular, not linear.

    Dude, haven't you heard that we will make a leap in consciousness in 2012? So, get ready for socialism.
