A large part of Ender's Game is about Ender trying to find his proper place in the world – a community to which he can belong, a community where he can live without worrying about competition and manipulation and war. Now, we see Ender go through a number of communities in this book: his Earth-side school, his family, the various armies at Battle School. Each of those communities seems to have some problem. Then, at the end of the book, we get an entirely different type of community: the alien hive, where each bugger has its place and they’re all working for the queen. Now, there are issues with that sort of lifestyle. (Have you ever worked for a queen? It’s exhausting.) But we can see how that example is radically different than many of the other communities that Ender has tried to be a part of. Which raises the question: would Ender be happier as a bugger in a bugger community?
