Are we over breading, running around spreading diseases, destroying the area we chose to live in?
Are we eating our way through the resources of food that we greatly consume, with an intensity of manic proportions?
Do we all look to the ground, ignoring all around us, intent on our own daily routine, scurrying to get from one place to another?
Are we a mass of infected animals, creating havoc, moving in a tide of destruction with an in built genetic flaw of self preservation?
Just a thought.....

I believe that humans are not rats, but a virus intead. A virus will consume all resources until there are non left, then move on to a new host. We are most like that. We consume everything, and give nothing in return but a polluted evironment. Perhaps one day we will learn to co-exist with our planet. Maybe. But until then, we are nothing more than a virus consuming everything in it's path. And I dare anyone to call me a tree-hugger! I cut and burn trees for my camp fire. But only what I need at the moment. And I always plant a new tree for the one I cut. But this is just my opinion.

If you took the biomass of all the termites in the world, it would exceed that of humans.
15% of the worlds population consume 75% of the worlds resources.
In other words, there are greedy individuals eating all the food, and there is plenty of room for more people if they did not take so much of the pie for themselves.
