If you pick up 100 red ants and 100 black ants and put them inside a glass jar, nothing will happen. But if you take the jar and shake it violently, automatically ants will start killing each other. Black Ones will believe red ones are the enemy and red ones will believe black ones are the enemy when the real enemy is the person who shakes the jar. Well, the same is true in our society.
Men vs Women.
Left vs Right.
Rich vs Poor.
Faith vs Science.
Young vs Old.
And so on
Before we start fighting each other, we should ask ourselves: Who shakes the jar?
Wake up it's about time.
I don't judge people on race, religion, gender,
ability or size, I judge them on whether or not
they're a prat!

Except that the red and black ants would definitely be fighting before the jar was shaken.AND if they are fire ants they would be winning.
AND if they are anything like the fire ants that have invaded Queensland the person who picked them up would be in a lot of pain.

Bloody hell. My natural instinct to something like this is to say it’s codswallop but it really is quite profound. The more you think about it, the more it rings true.
The answer to the question “who shakes the jar” is obviously Rick Parry.
