Man is a social animal- is a general saying. while, there are many animals which have societies(Ants have some kind of society i believe, many other animals move in herds). hu-man does add something to man, because there is something exceptionally different in man,compared to any other species on earth.
The ablity to think,express, and understand the the world. The knowledge component is what is makes human truely different.yes we have great resources, volumes of knowledge, probably more than a trillion giga bytes of knowledge. Knowledge by itself is useless without discipline and practise of the discipline(hope i don't need to explain this one).
Inspite of the huge amount of knowledge and various attempts to discipline ourselves, most of us sccumb to the basic animal tendencies. Infact a great amount of business, depend quite a bit on sex. (The advertising industry, most of the Film industry, fashion industry, cosmetics industry, pornographic industry, prostitute/brothel business, nightlife business etc). someone like frued, went to write a whole human psycology based on sex.
Does sex deserve this much attention.are we trying go back to animal instincts or try to move away and move into better things in the world? should we waste our efforts on sex or work for basic necessities for all, like food, clothing and shelter. are these Need based businesses or vanity based businesses?
while, millions are starving and running around naked, and live in unhealthy condtions,we work for vanity. is this why we call overselves marvels of creation. while we are potentially marvels of creation. are we?
while no ones freedom is questioned here, are we discriminating our actions, is our discriminating power used in the proper way?
