About “being human” and “a choice”

…say that people are “humane” is to say that they are kind; to say that they are “beastly,” “brutal,” or simply that they behave “like animals” is to suggest that they are cruel and nasty. We rarely stop to consider that the animal who kills with the least reason to do so is the human animal. We think of lions and wolves as savage because they kill; but they must kill, or starve. Humans kill other animals for sport, to satisfy their curiosity, to beautify their bodies, and to please their palates. Human beings also kill members of their own species for greed or power. Moreover, human beings are not content with mere killing. Throughout history they have shown a tendency to torment and torture both their fellow human beings and their fellow animals before putting them to death. No other animal shows much interest in doing this. Peter Singer

Don’t you think humans are in some way more evil (in general) than animals? Are you more evil than your dog or lion in Kenya or giant Japanese Hornet (very deadly I’ll tell ya)? My answer is YES. Because you (as a human being) can make choices and because you understand what’s ‘right’ and ‘wrong’. You probably want to tell me: “thats why we can’t compare animals and humans! Because all choices animals make based on instinct and survival, but humans – based on morals/moral behaviour.”

But thats exactly my point…why you/we who can make choices still doing evil? Because we like it (lets be honest), and because it’s OK to be evil. Its some kind of fashion trend.

Below there you’ll see an image of my pet/dog Daisy (say ‘Hello’ to Daisy, haha) – very kind lazy (beautiful pure heart) animal.

Animal, full of unconditional love. There you’ll find a lifelong friendship, which only requires some scratching behind the ears. Also a guardian, who will always protect. And a company, happy because you are with him/her. There you’ll find a friend, who will never judge you, and will love you F-O-R-E-V-E-R. And of course a perfect playmate, who will let you live your childhood memories. Ahhhhh

Can you find a human like this? And how often? Something to think about…

  1. Great view! We are slaves of our greed, addicted to remedy the pain our greed causes us. Because of this viscous cycle we lie to ourselves and others, and are fearful of being exposed or stopped, why we fight others. But we can do better as there are many examples too:-). All the best!
