The general trend among those who think in similar ways to myself, is to assume a feeling of superiority over those who, to quote Xev, are "drones. Mindless, unthinking, unfeeling drones. The shallow graves they drop into after leading their pointless lives are a fitting inheritance for them, not the stars.". It has occured to me though, that perhaps we need the drones in order to be what we are. the development of man has in my opinion consisted of a few sparks shedding light, and the drones following those sparks when they are provided... in much the same way as moths circling a lightbulb. Let's forget the third world and religion for a moment, and concentrate on the first world only. Do we need the drones to ensure a status quo, or an ordered civilisation in which we are able to think, or are they a hindrance to our development? Are we the queens in the hive?
