Laws of the jungle....
Sat Nov 18, 2017 4:00am

How far should we go to protect human life in the "jungle" of civilization?

Should humans have a right to conceive life that they cannot or will not raise or care for?

Should humans have a duty to protect or care for those that are conceived by others who cannot or will not protect or care for themselves?

When does it become necessary to cull the herds of overpopulation from irresponsible or uncontrolled conception of life? Should we wait for nature to do so with disease and starvation... or "human nature" to engage in wars of mass destruction or exploitation?

We make laws to protect human life and "human rights".... but we have to decide as humans how far or what rights and "freedoms" we value the most and aim to protect?

It is deer season right now. People are out there "murdering" and eating deer. But if the herds of deer were not culled, people would be dying on the roads. Maybe there are too many people on the roads anyway? Just nature striking a balance?

        Stop destroying the natural environment. Our confabulation is a artificial connivance about which its structure is a death trap for the natural world. I am not sure a "right" is involved in... more

          I don't think we or any other creatures are trying to kill a living planet. Most are just trying to survive and thrive until our own death, and hopefully the planet will live on to support future... more

            We say He made us in His image. More like we made Him in ours. Enough never is. Good enough never is good enough. I tinker with and practice two things, never reaching "good enough." My music, and my ... more

              Two worthy endeavors, I'd say. I've been picking around on the piano a bit myself lately, and will probably do more of that over the winter months since I won't be outside as much working in the yard ... more

      There are many forms of life on this planet that exist to be eaten, to be killed as you noted. So, clearly, plankton that are eaten in uncountable numbers every day do not have a 'right' to life.... more
