toukarin posted this as a comment earlier today and it just seems to sum things up:
"Not sure how many here remember the movie "A Bugs Life," A rather poignant scene from there: [Hopper has just drowned three dissenting grasshoppers in a pile of seeds] Hopper: You let one ant stand up to us, then they all might stand up! Those puny little ants outnumber us a hundred to one and if they ever figure that out there goes our way of life! It's not about food, it's about keeping those ants in line. That's why we're going back! Does anybody else wanna stay? [grasshoppers shocked - all the grasshoppers "rev up" their wings] Molt: [motioning a fellow grasshopper] He's quite the motivational speaker, isn't he?
