Look At It This Way (#LAITW)

All living things are survivalists

by on Dec.11, 2015, under Uncategorized

Are you a God person? Or a Nature person? Or some sort of in-the-middle spiritual person?

It really doesn’t matter. Either way, we did not create ourselves. “The World” (whoever, whatever, however) created us just like everything else was created. Whatever we do is perfectly natural. We (human beings) are as much a part of nature as anything else.

So, what separates us from the animals? I offer this. All living things are survivalists. All living things kill/destroy other things to eat, live, etc.

So, what separates us from everything else? Humans have decided (most of the ones I know, anyway) that we have a right to survival, but not at the un-do expense of others. We have a right to kill others if others threaten mortal harm. We have a right to eat animals and plants as long as we’re prudent and conservative about it. We do not have a right to take from others, period. Can you wrap your mind around the fact that starving is not an excuse to steal in the human world, but is for anything else?

It may seem a subtle difference, but it means everything. Both ways.
