Re: Bee Lovers Unite
Why do people think that prevention or removing 'suffering' from life is a good thing?
"suffering" is the adversity in life that all creatures contend with and either adapt to, or submit to.
Nothing in life for any living creature is 'guaranteed' to be without adversity or suffering. Neither is anything guaranteed to be easy or without effort.
Bees need adversity, they use it to improve their life situation just as any living thing does. either by evolving and adapting or succumbing and removing unsuccessful responses from the future.
Suffering is a human term that implies emotion. It implies emotional pain and agony that other people feel compelled to diminish out of concern or pity.
I don't think bees need or want pity. Moreso they just need people to be facilitators instead of dictators. ( this is impacted by my opinion on people seeing themselves as 'stewards" but that's another topic)
By trying to work with bees natural activity instead of trying to bend them to our desire, they might be much better off.
just my two cents though.
No, I am NOT a bee "Keeper". Anything I post is just my opinion. Take it easy and think for yourself.
