Response to no more banksters (Original post)

1. "...meant to be..." ?

...end discussion...

That aside... morality, altruism, compassion, empathy, these are all naturally existing components in most of nature. How each organism perceives these components and the measure of its self awareness determines the definition within it's environment.

Survival in all its classifications exists in all of nature and its successfulness is determined by all other forms of life in its environment and the condition of the environment itself.

Complacency, apathy, greed and hate are all human constructs and are not defined in the natural world and arise from the arbitrary advancement of our brain.

We as humans have abolished nothing nor can we "bring back" any condition that is naturally occurring anyway; it's illogocal. As a species we are progressively not participating in certain components of earth's evolutionary advancement and we are promoting sociopathy. This has been going on since the evolutionary branch from which we came diverged. There is little in our species that show signs of change in that regard and it will be our demise. We will be an exceptionally short lived species, a failed species comparatively speaking, whose cognitive abilities grew too rapidly to allow a balance between intelligence, self awareness and our environment.

In this regard, we have become so arrogant as to think we are worth saving as a species contrary to nature which is preparing to eliminate us as if we never existed... and it will. We are a virus which will destroy it's host if the host doesn't destroy us first and we are infinitely weak compared to our host planet and it's life systems.

Artificial intelligence has little to do with it because I doubt it will have the time necessary to replace us. If it did, just like us, It would destroy itself if it is modeled in any way after humankind.

Bottom line, it's likely time for us to be phased out so the planet can try again.
