Ant colonies are infinitely better organised than human society because they all share the same aim. Also true of bees and wasps. Homo sapiens are less efficient because of the eternal conflict between individualism and collectivism
That is why we can not function as well as our insect friends. Were we ants or bees or wasps then we would be a
much more advanced species simply because we would all be working for the greater good

This is what I aim for and somehow this makes me some kind of big fucking villain even when the people
judging me mouth platitudes about the pale blue dot and how small and petty human thought usually is

I think ego is too powerful in the human psyche to achieve this. It can work in relatively small numbers but not on city scales or above where there are different cultures and belief systems all existing together. And the larger that society becomes the more diversified it becomes and diversity increases individualism rather than diminish it which makes collectivism less likely
