Animals are designed by nature to prey on other species for survival. Humans evolving from primates remain hunters and gatherers until today. They not only hunt animals and birds in the wild, they also pursue fellow humans upon situations not working in their favor.
Where do some humans acquire these traits from?
Taking the life of another being i.e. killing, homicide ranks high on crimes against citizens in society.
Those in position of authority authorizing mass killing through wars launching missiles, air strikes, rockets and predator drones against targets regarded weak and vulnerable is the hallmark of power.
Society is expected to accept the system that holds the privileged above the law and have the same members pass law for enforcement on ordinary citizens in the state. The law is applicable on common people and exempt those in the league.
Imposing imprisonment and death sentence without legal course. The example – inmates in Guantanamo Bay denied habeas corpus and subject to torture adapting to various inhumane practice.
The crime committed whilst in office extends into extra judicial executions of citizens at home and abroad in the abuse of power.
Are they held accountable?
No. Instead they are glorified and extended extraordinary respect and reverence in some case.
When laws and rules are only meant for mainstream population including majority, minority and disenfranchised excepting the powerful, famous and influential demonstrably culpable on hosts of issues that is ironically stated as democratic, the trend portends ominous future.
As for others in collusion with negative forces, there are strange aspirations that make them apart from normal humans.
The death wish on others while dread own mortality.
Eulogize the living and resurrect the dead for deception.
Engage in propaganda and lies to deflect public attention from own crimes and indulgence.
Harbor ill feelings and prejudice against anyone considered a threat to harmful agenda.
Create characters and proxies in the hope to inflict damage on reputation.
Spying and maligning to maintain personal pursuits and sinister dealings.
Then there are insinuations with the intent to cast shadow that appropriately fits the profile of cowardliness.
Anything carried out deliberately without having the courage to name targets is sly and shameful.
The worst is sponsoring terrorism to terrorize innocent children, women, men and elderly in the game. In the course, the rape, murder and carnage brought upon citizens in foreign land is rejoiced and celebrated as victory though the action is diabolic deserving condemnation.
The one that tops the chart is representing cannibalism witnessed in Syria. This is where the human evolution deviation to dissolution is prominent.
The evolutionary science discusses about Wolves becoming dogs.
How about determining what makes humans transform to hyenas?
Hyenas are scavengers and survive on carcass and carrion. They dwell and attack in packs that are mimicked by certain humans to sustain dysfunctional order. The coarse manner with distinctive instinct to violate anything they do not approve are semblance to the creature unique in aggression and connivance.
When fame, fortune and power is acquired by any means, the urge to gain more often corrupts human mind impairing rationality and adroitness in recognizing limits to wrongdoings and violations.
In other areas of sensibility – rivalry, mean spirit, condescendence and pejorative activities define deterioration in human value. These feelings attributed to inner turbulence and despondency adversely affect source upon neglect to review and reform behavioral pattern.
Human qualities such as caring, compassion, empathy, tolerance and mutual respect are undermined by self-interests and excess greed. The other detrimental factors are ignorance and arrogance. The combined effects of these two characteristics are potent in self-destruction.
These are all signs of individual personality disorder and culmination leading to serious consequence and sometimes irreversible outcome.
When human mind desire to cause pain and suffering, the condition reflects internal conflict contributing to external problem. Again, the disturbing agents viz. ego, envy, apathy and hostility play a dominant role in exacerbating offense.
In any scenario, beginning with self in true assessment of character and shortcomings would sow the seed for modesty and humility. Acknowledgment of own deficiency and mistakes provides opportunity to start afresh with a clear and open mindset.
Understanding the basic facts on birth and death is critical to meaningful and peaceful existence.
The arrival in the world with nothing on – bare naked at birth is how one leaves upon death – leaving behind even skin and bone when the soul departs from the body.
That being the reality, the interim between birth and death is wasted by those involved in making others’ lives miserable. The principle live and let others live refraining from unwanted and unnecessary squabbles is not welcome by those dedicating life to delusional thoughts and ambitions.
Life is a gift worth cherishing upon giving and living to benefit all. In the least avoiding participation to wound others rather than assist them however possible would be a saving grace.
Human deeds and not the creed that finalize the ultimate journey.
Peace to all!
