What is Humanity
Since I have been writing the Maxwell Empire Books I have been asking the question “What is the point of humanity?”
In the time frame of the books all work is done by robots and the obvious question as a result is why are the humans here.
I realised last night that it is not a question of humanity but of all life.
I am assuming that the Waylon Johncocks of the world and the rest of the Aboriginal community are not representative of the rest of us in not valuing the life of all other animals and thinking stoning a terrified animal to death is appropriate behaviour.
I recently found a dove sitting on the driveway next door. I knew it was alive from the gleam in its eye.
I took it inside and offered it some food and drink but it was not doing anything.
I put it in a box with the provisions but in the morning it was rigid with death and I was unhappy with the result. It had been warm alive and was now cold in death. It was a fellow living creature in living but was now garden compost – it went in the green bin.
We are part of all life. We have evolved with animals and are one of them. In our evolution we have eaten animals and our bodies are designed to continue to do so. Millions of years of evolution is not negated by having eating plants only thoughts. Cows have evolved to eat grass. They are a bit big to deter from chomping on your arm or leg if they decide to add a bit of farmer meat to their diet, but cows don’t have these thoughts; they know that cows eat grass.
Similarly humans need to know that humans eat meat.
We do not need to be cruel in gathering our meat. We are not valuing life if we are. Australian Aboriginals are part of Australian society. For the Government to condone and support their Stone Age behaviour by allowing them to stone terrified animals to a death taking many minutes does not have my support. The place of Aboriginals in Australia has to be changed. They have to become Australians rather than the privileged, ungrateful mob they currently are.
The rest of us are not allowed to increase the chance of species at risk of extinction whereas Aborigines have convinced the Government they should be able to hunt any to the point where there are no more.
Stupid you say.
A fair assessment of Australian Government attitudes to the Aborigines.
We are part of all life. We all need to respect all life.
We all need to follow the Octet.
