Well, there are quite a few biologists, not limited to E.O. Wilson, who
wrote a book by the name, who consider _The Insect Societies_ to be (or
is it "bee") societies.

I find Liz's attitude quite reasonable.

As for me, the older I get, the less patient I become with people--both
chomskyan innatist and social folks (?socialists?)--who would draw a
sharp line between humans and other animals.
