    “…latterly the discovery has been made that their [the ants] political system is occasionally disturbed by socialistic agitators. Certain ants who hoard too much golden honey, or other wealth, are occasionally the victims of communistic riots. The poor and starving ants strike against the tyranny of capital, slay the millionaires, and distribute their hoards throughout the community. So that there are more things to be learned from the ant than Solomon ever dreamed of.”

    Lafcadio Hearn, “Insect Politics.” THE ITEM, July 11th, 1878.
