Who knows what our world would be like if we weren’t such greedy fucking barbarians?

While I'm definitely not in need of ANY F$#KING religion, I often have wondered what this damn planet would be like if we ALL behaved morally. We would have less or no -- human starvation, animal destruction, planet destruction, abortion, euthanasia, poor or non-existent international aid, physical misery, etc.

The equitable distribution of surpluses has been one of Humanity's biggest problems since the founding of civilization, 12,000 years ago.

equal to Einstein...isn't that a bit of a stretch.
some people win in the genetic pool. many lose & struggle.
a sad fact of our existence.

There would likely be no humans at all. Evolution drives people to provide for themselves and their offspring. Today that manifests itself as greed. We evolved in Eastern and Southern Africa, and for a long time we were nowhere near the top of the food chain. We faced multiple near extinction events. If our survival instinct was not so strong we would likely not be here.

An interesting question given your current profile pic, which I must say is rather on the barbaric side for a ronin.

Post apocalyptic Ronin sir and it has nothing to do with the subject at hand.

I'd say it's almost definite.
And also true today as there's millions of people in poverty who may never get an opportunity to excel at whatever hidden talent they have.

We would be substantially dumber and wouldn’t able to stand against wilderness

Wow that was definitely not the response that I was expecting. So I guess that you might view slavery as something purposeful?

@48thRonin I’m sayin that intelligence is a matter of practice and defense is one of such necessities that do make us THINK constantly. Take it away and see what human will become...

@Antidronefreeman Interesting point indeed.
