Yes, I do see us as a species of animals. I don't see why you think I don't.So then, you do not believe in evolution as applied to humans?
Humans are not just another animal?
What I want to point out is that the rules for wolves, lions, elephants, dolphins, craws (to give some examples of animals that have quite a set of social rules) are also different from each other
YesIt is an unattainable philosophical ideal,
which is common to all idealsset up to fail,
don't think so. The ideal often mobilises the weak to fight together against the unjust/unfair strongused by the "strong" to herd and corral the weak.
I thought you are a Christian. I think neither Christians nor Muslim can share his view as we believe that there's Greater than our higher self.Just ask Amir, I'm sure he can tell you all about it.
don't get you there...That doesn't dismiss embryonic morality in herding and pack animals in the wild, but it is embellished with an impossible ideal.
Yes, we have to face our limits. We can't care for the whole world.Get past the impossible ideal and make the world the best you can for you. If you can help others raise themselves along the way, great! But you are not responsible for others outside of your charge (meaning you are responsible for your minor children, and those under your command in a military or employment situation), so if others can't or won't see the reality and apply it accordingly, that isn't on you.
We need the courage and power to change what we can change, the serenity to accept what we cannot change and the wisdom to discern the one from the other (Reinhold Nibuhr)
Who's false promises do you refer to?Since fairness is an impossible ideal, it is used on the masses to confuse and confound (and assuage with false promises).
Is this then a compliment in your eyes?Which tells me that the entire concept of fairness is so vague as to be meaningless.
And you are being so unfair!
Do you wish to live a life where the people around you because you take advantage of them?It is an ideal, and to a point perhaps encouraged, but it isn't something to get my knickers in a twist if things don't go my way. If things don't go my way, I either let it go and work around it, or hire an attorney. Either way, I choose which in order to create the life I wish to live.
