The Human Race

Posted: 07.01.07 in Blogging

I had been thinking about this post for a few days. It struck me about a week ago how strange the human race is. Any other intelligent species would probably look on in amazement at the independence of thought we have. This independence is such that it harms the development of the human race. Let me explain.

Take the ant race. Within a community of ants, the prime concerns are to protect the queen ant, maintain the nest and ward off predators. It’s as simple as that. They instinctively pull together.

But look at us. We vote for different parties. Our priorities are different. We look at those less well off than ourselves with pity or disregard. We either embrace scientific and technological advancement or fear it.

Is humankind its own enemy?
