yeah, but they are beginning to be enough grasshoppers to keep one in as president. Then the president grasshopper can take from the ants and give to the other grasshoppers who keeps him in office.

If you consider this as evolutionary strategy (I know that might not go over well here, but hear me out), the grasshopper strategy is very effective in times of plenty. Live off the fat of the land, father your children with many women and then abandon them to be raised by others. That works as long as there is plenty to go around. If it goes on long enough, the world starts to look like Idiocracy.

But in a time of scarcity, the savers, the close communities and families, will be the ones who survive. The grasshoppers will turn into a plague of locusts and devour all they can, but there will be only so many green fields and then they'll die in the wastelands. Then the ants build civilization up again, thus encouraging rapid growth in the grasshopper population again.
