When It’s Good to Be Antisocial

When It’s Good to Be Antisocial

Sometimes everybody wins when you go it alone.
From "Nautilus"
by Silvia Golumbeanu

Bees are emblems of social complexity. Their honeycombs—intricate lattices dripping with food—house bustling hive members carrying out carefully orchestrated duties like defending against predators and coordinating resource collection. Much of our own success is due to this sort of division of labor. Clearly, in the animal kingdom, it pays to be social: Certain neurons make us resent being alone. You could be forgiven for assuming that complex social organization is the—or at least a—pinnacle of evolution.

Yet out of the 20,000 known species of bees, only a few are social. Some bee species have even given up social behaviors, opting for the single life. Why?

There's those who don't wanna talk to people, & then there's the ones who can't not get in people's faces about whatever it is that's the Woke idiocy of the day

It's sad but it's how Woke folk like it. They aren't happy unless they're unhappy about something, & making unWoke folks unhappy! Hell on Earth's their Utopia.
There are none so asleep & oblivious to the real world as those who are & would be Woken.
