Human, rediscovered?

Humans have been on a downward track for over 100 thousand years. First, they tried to kill in clans, then in countries, religions and country clubs. As the Russian autocrat in cohort with the Chinese and the Indians, kill and pillage a small country, and the rest try to save humanity, there are glimpses of hope. The septuagenarians in the Supreme Court and the Congress have been holding humanity down as they do not seem to understand the modern human. It is time to rediscover the human.

Who is human? Is she the one who understands that the outcomes of an individual are largely driven by the initial conditions afforded to her or the one spending time to assure that the “other party,” loses? Is she the one trying to strike “deals,” in designer suits while kicking sand into the eyes of those by the roadside? Is he the one who claims to be close to God but does not know anything about the book he holds upside down? Are they the ones who talk drivel on TV but say something different in private? Is he a killer or a pacifier?

Who is human? There are humans in most of humanity, but that does not include the important, the knowledgable, the powerful and the wealthy.
