Dear members of the United States congress . . .

“Contrary to Darwinian concepts of evolution, in higher organisms evolution favors the most cooperative.  Take honey bee colonies for example, where workers collaborate for the common good.  The human body works in much the same way.  There are over 100 trillion cells in the body that survive not by competing with each other for available food on the bloodstream, but by working cooperatively as a colony.  Yet humans as a species have yet to discover what bees know. Brute force and fierce competition are no longer the sole keys to survival.”

~Alberto Villoldo
