Someone said :
Men think in quantity.
Women think in quality. We do not worry when we do not have too much. We worry when what we have is not right.
Would it be fair to say there is quality in quantity for then we have choice, but to have the freedom to choose you need quantity.
Its one of those things about us which is sexless man can never have enough he can only have to much, that is the whole underpin of any economic system that follows our nature its why communism can never work.
There is a part of the world which can give us a fore taste of life without bees, in Sichuan in China the bee was wiped out by the overuse of pesticides, the area went from a thriving agricultural region to an economic back wash. The remaining farmers are forced to self pollinate their crops with feather dusters, it is very labour intensive and would be unthinkable if we had to do this everywhere. http://www.newsweek.com/2008/06/14/stung-by-bees.html
