Things that people do

June 30, 2008

(or don’t do)

Heard some comedian on the hype machine just now repeating some people-are-bad cliches:

1. humans are the only species that kill each other for personal gain

2. humans are the only species that kill other species for personal gain

C’mon now Ted. Haven’t you ever seen a nature programme? Chimps beating each other to death, hyenas eating wildebeest alive, killer whales smashing up baby seals, etc etc. Some people may not be that nice, but I don’t think we should be looking to the animal kingdom for inspiration on how to treat one another.
