A little dose of Morality

Mankind should not be judged by the way they treat their equals, but rather by the way they treat their subordinates, and if we, as a whole, are judged according to that standard it is obvious that we will be deemed unworthy. Just take a look at all the atrocities we have committed, in the guise of ‘they don’t feel as we do’, excusing our actions by pretending to not notice and recognise the pain we see in their eyes. By naming these beings ‘animal’ we automatically assign them to a lesser hierarchy, excluding ‘them’ from ‘us’. If we have learned nothing as a species, we should at least notice and deny ourselves the right to pass judgement, for by behaving as we do towards these animals, we become the lesser beings.
