If you haven't seen the DreamWorks movie Antz (1998), you are missing out an excellent example of Marxism.  The story began on an anthill will millions of ants are working on a conformity system. The main character, Z, is an average ant worker who serves pretty low on the ants' system.  Of course, for every system to run smoothly there must be a leader.  The ants are ruled by an old king and Princess Bala who eventually gets involved with Z.

However, the ants do not willingly work under their system.  They serve the grasshoppers who demands the ants to harvest food for all the grasshoppers before the winter season.  If the ants do not collect enough food, the grasshoppers will eat all the ants.
