Bees and Socialism

Another gem from Small Talk at Wreyland:

‘Whenever I look at bees, I feel misgivings about the future of mankind. Think of the bees that invented the hexagonal cells, and the bees that go on building these cells and yet go buzzing against glass panes in one half of a window when the other half is open. the bees that could invent such cells, would surely have the ability enough to find their way round glass. But bees are socialists; and socialism means that individuals of great ability will be kept down, and all ability will gradually be atrophied from want of use. I rather think that this is what has happened to the bees, and it may be happening to mankind.’

The man was a true genius and visionary!
