Reportedly three million Syrian children have toxic stress. They are traumatised because of what they witnessed during the Syrian war: other children being slashed to death, people being shot, and so on.Those children are the casualties of human beings that have become a lifeform lower than animals.
People who kill are lower than animals.
People who wage war are lower than animals.
People who believe everybody should have guns are lower than animals.
People who hate other people because of their atheism or other religion are lower than animals.
People who assault or violate other people are lower than animals.
In short, all people who damage or take lives are lower than animals.
If you look at the history of mankind, then one can only decide that many human beings are lower than animals.
Luckily, there are also many kind people. Now why do they only seldom reach power positions?
Perhaps because being nice is their undoing when confronted with the lower than animals fellow human beings.
Perhaps we are simply doomed and we will be our own undoing. And perhaps, just perhaps, that’s all for the best.
