Has humankind a gene, a chromosome, a whatever within itself that predisposes us to be monsters with a self-destructive element programmed?
I believe that Life is pointless and we know it. I believe that our mind/brain subliminally tells us to self-destruct, rather like as if the World will end tomorrow so ' eat, drink and be merry for tomorrow we die '. We do not consciously acknowledge this, while, however, embarking on senseless wars, denuding the Earth of plants and animals---all imaginatively rationalized. ( S&*T, I am forced to spell American-style:-)
