Despite our so-called democracy, the human civilisation still resembles an ant society. At the top there is the political elite, which is the equivalent of the ant queen, and at the bottom there are millions or billions of ants, whose only job is to cater to the needs of the rulers. In the middle layer there are the ant guards, who perform the task of imposing the will of the ruling elite on the billions of ants at the bottom.
Perhaps it is true, we have all evolved from ants. Instinctively we still behave like ants.
In our society, everything is centrally managed and imposed from the top, just as in case of an ant colony. Every thing requires a policy design from the queen ants at the top. There is hardly any need for the operation of rational choice from below. Till we try to develop a society that is based on individual rational choice we can’t be anything better than ants.
If after billions of years of evolution, we still continue to function as a colony of ants, then what future can humanity have?
