CYU, Life on Earth is a cooperative process begun some 4 billion years ago when organic molecules in the primordial atmosphere autocatalyzed (cooperated!) to merge into protocells--primitive systems that then evolved in chemical steps into the first true living system/organism, a bacterium. These single-celled organisms then cooperatively spread to "rule" life on Earth until multi-celled organisms began to appear some 2 billion years later.
And then human beings rose, and it is our nature to be intensely cooperative social individuals along the lines of your anarcho-syndicalism and the many other left expressions of consciously organized community. But we humans and leftists must consciously form our communities in life's pervasive pattern of organized cooperation, and we haven't known how.
The Capra's triangle I have been promoting and developing elsewhere models life's universal pattern of organization to we who must consciously, cooperatively organize our lives.
The point of this post is that life on Earth is a differentiated unity of self-organizing, cooperative organisms. Forget the "nature red in tooth and claw" human misperception of life's pervasive cooperation and communication. The organisms we perceive as viciously fighting and eating each other are merely relating in various ways to keep life's bootstrap of living systems going. Life's organisms are simply maintaining the cooperation--the dynamic interdependence--of life on Earth, and Capra's triangle potentially enables regular human beings to "see" life's hidden organizational relations and to create and live realized lives in various forms of human community and cooperation.
As for that bacterium of the OP, its genes are cooperative, too, and could only be so. A bacterium's genes are organized into a genome--a living system. Genes are nothing without the cooperative organization of the genome they form.
A major point: reductionist science has glorified the individual gene, which is but a bit of dust without organization into a genome. Current reductionist science, led by persons such as Richard Dawkins, therefore ignores the organization the underlies all life, and revolutionaries cannot make this mistake. We gotta emphasize organization and get organized!
Current neo-Darwinian evolutionary theory has the cell with its genome beginning life, but the extraordinary organization required for this to occur could not have been cobbled together by random, external forces. So creationists are correct when they criticize the neo-Darwinian evolutionary process as scientifically invalid. The evolutionary theorist, Stuart Kauffman, has estimated the mathematical possibility of neo-Darwinian evolutionary theory's model of the beginning of life being correct as one to the number of hydrogen atoms in the universe. Neo-Darwinian evolutionary theory thus expects monkeys to write Shakespeare.
Let's get two matters correct. Primitive cells preceded the cellular living systems that then evolved genes as internal markers to guide the organizational parameters of the developing and environmentally interacting organism. It is cells first, genes later, and the self-organization of matter into living systems on Earth is a deeply cooperative, communal process.
The second point is that life consists of various forms of differentiated cooperation and community, such as anarchism, communism, anarcho-syndicalism, etc. These human social systems have a natural organization (community), and Capra's triangle models the universal pattern of organization from which life's myriad forms of community arise.
Life and cooperation are inseparable, and I'd like to find more of a sense of cooperation at RevLeft. We must begin to devise paths out of capitalism into various forms of human community before capitalism destroys us.
My red-green best.
