To prove our superiority
Like everything human, justice is imperfect. It’s flawed. But it’s those very imperfections that separates us from the machines and maybe even makes us a species worth saving.
~ Doyle Franks, Battlestar Galactica
Why is it that we try so hard to prove we are separate from other animals (or in this case machines)? We seem to pick something we feel is uniquely human and then use it to prove our superiority. I find this hugely disturbing. Especially since we generally do this so that we can justify the horrific things we do to those we determine are inferior to us.
Think, then Go Vegan!
