The Perfect Predator – MAN and the Killing Concept!

Evolution of the “Brutality and Killing Concept”.

Is there a justifiable rationale for violence? Humans have evolved enough to come up with numerous reasons. Reasons that sanction cruelty. Reasons that explain the need for brutality. Reasons why it’s “okay” to use excessive force. Reasons to KILL.

What gives this cruel concept it’s lasting power, a force and life of it’s own … 

… Fear! Hatred, Prejudice, and Greed feed those who seek Power! Those who also seek monetary wealth which fosters Corruption. Our own individual weaknesses give those who would profit from same their ability to control, maneuver and use whatever and whoever is necessary to achieve their private goals.

Intensive research (statistical data of the numbers killed in our world’s history, up to present day) point to two reasons for these deaths:

Number One: Religion (wars and persecution)
Number Two: Controlling others: the need for Power

The above two reasons are facts not an opinion!

Over the years, we humans have perfected the “Brutality and Killing Concept” by accepting an animalistic belief that it is unfortunate but somehow “okay” to either take a life or at the very least misuse, abuse and ignore a life’s need to survive. A rationale that “the end does justifies the means” because of … “pick a justification”! And yes we hace accepted this as a ‘sad but true’ fact in our own lives. But is it hardwired into our physical make-up? I hope not. I hope it is something that can be reprogrammed because honestly, right now, it’s not looking so good.

Too many of us seek selfish and personal, petty self gratification at the price of others, safe in our artificial world of “okayness”. So what’s happening to others is viewed at a distance, (starving, brutality and death) is just not our problem, until the day it happens to one of us or ours, close up and personal and then it becomes our problem too. But when we (humans “en masse“) finally realize the wrongness of cruelty and brutality as an unresolved problem for everyone – will it be too late?

Killing for ANY reason is wrong. BRUTALITY for any reason is wrong. IGNORING for any reason is wrong.

?????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

Can all mankind learn the “saving lives” concept? We most urgently need an “app” for that – to be downloaded into our consciousness or more specifically … our “conscience”!

Predator/Prey or enlightened human beings!

predator or prey

An Official Rant! Brought to you by myself. It is long, but I’d appreciate it if you’d take those few extra minutes to approve or disapprove of what I am expressing here. Thank you! And so the ranting begins:

We are a thinking species. At least I’d like to think so. All of us consider ourselves as intelligent and most believe we have spirits (souls) within us, so it begs the question that if those things are true, why do we still live in the animal world of predator/prey mentality of life.

Our civilization is not civilized as long as any one single human being (much less the many) starves, is killed, mistreated, discriminated against, judged, and by virtue of a “going with the crowd theme” making fun of (for being different) and at the extreme end of the spectrum killed for that difference. Exactly what part of that is “being civilized”!

When animals kill one another they do so to survive. The purpose of war is to protect and preserve “a way of life” – but it has always been and will always be at the “expensive” expense of life, always! To me this negates the purpose, at least one would think so. Can there be no “other solutions” for solving man’s problems? And why isn’t more money spent on solving international problems from a “not killing” perspective instead of the trillions spent on designing and building new and improved weapons.

Are we still only just surviving? Haven’t we (in this socialized world of today) moved beyond that? Most obviously not. In politics, one of the first things one hears is that it’s a cut throat business (?)  Finding any groups of elected officials actually coming together to work as a team is almost unheard of anywhere today. And in business, it is not about finding and selling a product that humans need, but filling the “consumer addiction” for all things new, fun, and different – all for the purpose of “making money” (often at the disregard and expense of those they cater to). I speak nothing here that you don’t already know is true!

And then there’s most all of us. The “we” of it all, just going along with the flow where ever we happen to be. Making no waves. Overspending, overeating, overdoing (at the expense of time that should be spent in the nurturing and teaching of values such as honor and honesty) so desperately needed in the slowly disintegrating family environment of today). What are we doing to ourselves guys? Is this then our future?

We prey upon the negativity that permeates the news. It looms large every single second of every single day making sure that in all the various mass media no one will miss out (ratings rule – not happy people) on what’s going wrong instead of embracing that which we are getting right. That which is nurturing. that which is uplifting, that which is loving, giving, caring, and sharing.

But just imagine! What if … what if we woke up deciding to get along, try harder to be there for our family, friends and others. What if we reached out to those who needed help and support. (There are a handful of people, around the world, who are already doing just that.) What if there were many many more of those others (such as ourselves) waiting there  … to help make the positive difference through the rough spots of life.

We’d no longer be predator and prey but the human race, working and loving together (as a whole) to overcome and conquer the most important part of what being a human being is all about – to love, nourish and support all things living.

“For the well being of all, the primary purpose on this planet is not to destroy but support life.”

Thank you,
