(1) Worker bees weren’t helping just any old bunch of bees; they were protecting their hive. (2) And their hive contained special individuals: blood relatives. So even though (3) the little worker bees may have been giving their lives, by doing so they were potentially saving hundreds of blood relatives. In modern parlance, (4) we’d say that the worker bees were helping blood kin, because blood kin are genetically related. By helping your blood relatives, (5) you are indirectly promoting the reproduction of copies of your own genes - copies that just happen to reside inside your kin.
