    It was probably more symbolic of the "hive mind" being a lie, and that the worker drones were nothing but slaves, controlled by a power hungry individual Queen Bee. Their collective consciousness is just their means of communication, not a heightened ability to make wiser decisions using the collective wisdom of their society. Because the true decisions were being made by their ruler.

    In other words, it's a reflection of our own society, and the lie we have been sold that we live in a democratic society.

    Well at least its better than being real peasants in a MONARCHAL society, don't you think?

    We get to be ROBOpeasants in a corrupted democratic capitalist society! I think it's a step up.
