The human species has so very far to go to reach being civilized. We should be living in caves as evidence of our current "civilized ways". Oh wait... millions already do live in caves.
Darfur. First genocide of the 21st century and we are living it now. One can only guess at what our future generations will think of this time in history...this time of mass murder and mayhem. They will probably snicker at our ignorance much like we do now when we think of people believing the earth was flat.
The inhumanity of man boggles the mind.
Edit: Now the UN is slashing funding for food because of lack of funds. Apparently life is not sacred after all.
