Skeletons in Humanity's Closet

That our species is so genetically similar yet so socially diverse speaks to some other force at play in life, in that we are uniquely this and uniquely capable and destructive.

When we understand we’re animals we can actually work from points of commonality; when we don’t there’s no way to connect the dots.

Humanity has been running away from the genocide of other human species since it happened; choosing to deny we’re animals rather than deal with the uncomfortable fact that we’re directly descended from a species that probably committed genocide on all other human species.

The Hell we fear…
