Subject: Re: [birders] loss of life impacting all
How do we quell the will to kill?  I could chalk it up to a sunconscious response to human overcrowding that starts with the very young.  Has anyone ever observed creatures other than humans willfully killing masses of living things without eating them?  Sure, horses swat flies with their tails but will chimps pull the legs off a walking stick for fun or the wings off a fly just to see what happens as human children will (is it just human males by the way)?  When humans feel the desire to kill and destroy, it’s usually defenseless things that suffer the most.  Plants, trees and things that can’t fight back.  It’s self loathing come full circle.  The best thing we can try is teaching an appreciation for these things.  New rule...if you can’t create it, you can’t destroy it.

I don’t know how many of you are aware of this study.  It should be shaking everyone to the core, further strong proof our birds, butterflies, amphibians and a whole host of other critters are in very serious trouble.
