hu7manity like all creatures is about survival and perpetuation of the species.
have we evolved that much in 100 years or so. ask the people in rwanda, srebrenica, chechnya. People killed for little or no reason.
look at india where they still have castes
Look at the war in Iraq, a war for oil, where loss of human life is seen as acceptable for the gains of prosperity
In the world we currently live, I dont think we can assume that if our time was coming to an end and the only way we could survive is the subjegation of a lesser species we would not tkae that option.
Look at animals for breeding, they are practically slaves, they have no choice in the matter and they are seen as lesser beings by many. Thats how the cons may view us
Okay so...you'd be okay with taking another species as slaves to rebuild your house, whether they liked it or not?
