Commentary: Do we really care for our fellow man or we just like any other animal? Actions say we are nothing special. The Golden Rule is not followed.

Currently we are shutting down the free world. We are destroying our economy and are in the process of doing this on the medical world’s word that because of the virus millions of the elderly and compromised human beings of the world will die as of the virus.


Yet, as a world that for the most part has condoned the extermination of millions of unborn ( human beings) children, we think it is ok to do so? Why do we not allow the natural selection of our species take effect, thus allowing those that, because of various health issues, fulfill that selection and which make the human race stronger in the long run?


All species on earth go through this natural selection in one way or another. Yes, we are human and we say we cherish even just one life, which in my opinion, is just the big lie of our humanity. As humans, as exhibited by the selfishness of what is taking place currently and is on exhibition by many today, we care for ourselves and not so much for others.


When you take emotions out of it (as we have done with the killings of the unborn, of the Jews by the Nazi’s, by the various holocausts this world has suffered through), that is as much a part of the human condition as any condition in our DNA and psyche makeup. Yes, I post this with some tongue-in-cheekiness, yet am I hitting on the real truth of the human race, yesterday, today, and tomorrow? The human animal is not above reproach and is a very inconsistent animal.

    Fred, I hope the hoarding is done by just a few. I have run into some of them, and expressed my distaste of their actions. They don’t argue. They don’t fight. They just run for the cashier.
    We are supposed to be a Christian country, founded on those values, however, throughout history humans have displayed their lowest standards of morals, be it hoarding, unsatisfied greed, murder of elderly, unborn, infants, or genocide.
    Sometimes I wonder if we lost our values.
    I know we are losing our culture.
    This event, as unexpected as it has been, will be a watershed for American life.
    Some changes may be very good; some horrific.

      Totally agree Tom. Except there are more hoarders than you might think. And the sad thing about some they think it funny. I called out someone and was laughed at. Another friend was at Sams and a woman had a large cart full of hand sanitizer. He took to her like a hungry dog to a steak. He took a couple of her packs of sanitizer and put it in his basket as she was taking it all. Sams should have not let that woman go check out all what she took. And then they should have told her to leave and never come back.
