Letter: What if we would live like animals?
Berube suggests the world would be a better place if we lived like animals.
We would only kill for self-preservation or for food.
We would not care what color or sex the other animals are.
Words like hate, despise, greed, cheat, discrimination and disgust would not even exist; and only words like love, caring, concern, defend and protect would be practiced.
We would accept the fact that God made us either a female or a male.
We would not breed or rape our young.
We would not breed our same sex.
We would only fight for food, territory and breeding rights.
We would support and defend each other, our leaders and those guarding us.
We would teach our young how to survive on their own before pushing them out of the nest.
We would not intentionally kill our young.
We would not bully each other.
We would not have access to alcohol, drugs, herbicides and pesticides.
If anyone with destructive and harmful ideas tried to join or influence the group, they would be dealt with accordingly.
Thank God animals were not given the ability to reason and use common sense!
