Sitting in a garden in an Australian summer, the old saw that the natural world is full of probing, investigating, exploiting and competing little creatures is brought to "life", so to speak. You don't have to be David Attenborough in an Amazonian rainforest to get a sense of the clamouring competition that rewards the pushy and destroys the weak.

The funny thing is that although the world of business is essentially the same as nature in this respect, 'greenies' express hatred of business and love for nature, while 'conservatives' express love for the former and sometimes want to concrete over the later. Greenies have a romantic ("Disney-fied") view of nature and conservatives have a romantic ("Rand-ified") view of business.
