humankind

A species that is extraordinary for its periodic bursts of civilization.

Since civilized people are more successful, they tend to become dominant, but few cultures seem to be able to keep it up for very long.

For as long as humans are around, though, they’ll keep trying, because civilization is so much more powerful than running around like wild animals.

Maybe its a tragedy of sorts that we can’t run around like wild animals.

Why can’t we run around like wild animals?

Because then we’d be displaced, marginalized, or destroyed by civilized humans, like all the other higher mammals, or domesticated to some particular use.

Probably better to wash up and put on some clothes, brush up on your studies, and go to work.
