I've been following this remarkable story in Canada where a guy was stabbed to death in a bus and then had his head cut off. The hacker then apparantly started chopping bits of the other bloke off, and eating him.
Almost as unbelievable is that when the guy started stabbing the soon to be headless, there were 47 people in the bus. Instead of assisting the unfortunate man, they ran out of the bus and just watched.
I am almost lost for words.
It got me thinking however; are we naturally a compassionate beast, or are we bad to the bone.
Having witnessed some terrible things in my life I'm leaning to bad.
I'm thinking along the lines of the ever inciteful Agent Smith:
"I’d like to share a revelation that I’ve had, during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species and I realized that you aren’t actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with its surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply, and multiply until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You are a plague, and we... are the cure."
Maybe it's all because Eve ate that bloody apple?
