That can even be so true in slavery. When one group accepts the conditions of said condition, then all parties are happy.
My God the love will soon follow me after this post. So just because dogs and cats are of a greater lesser intelligence, then it means it’s ok for us to exploit them for our own purposes? So in the animal kingdom all that is lacking intellect in comparison to our own are rightfully given doggie treats for their good deeds. In any other culture that would be horrific, but when we do it to dogs as we breed them to becoming nice pink white poodles that win us the “best in show” award, all morality of how we got to that point really doesn’t matter.
I’ve envisioned a future where we’ve genetically modified a cow’s brain to have an intellect that of a human. I get visions of a Cow Lawyer putting humans on trial for the atrocities committed by OUR race. Once the Bison get their intellect you’ll see the Native Americans running for their lives for all the genocide they’ve committed against the peace-loving bison over the past ten thousand centuries.
Those poor dogs being forced to smell the butts of the infected seems almost as bad as the dogs being addicted to cocaine so that they could track humans attempting to traffic it through the airports. If humans are being given a scale of altruism within the animal kingdom, I’m sure more questions of morality will come up.
The worst part is yet to come. You can condemn all this as evil, but you still exist in this world accepting it for what it is for all the horrors in which you seemingly ignore. Maybe you’re a vegetarian and refuse to eat meat. Maybe you feel better bringing down your molars on the very plant-life that gives you the air you breathe. In the world of earth ecology, you ARE the virus. Not just in global climate, but in other far worse things that had affected the environment in ways you could never have perceived. So long as the information is given to you in a nice box of intellectual authoritarians, you’ll never question your sources.
The trees are another group not too happy either way, as tunnels have been forged within their crotches and beyond giving way for your car to drive through, this in itself should be a moral dilemma for a truly altruistic humanist. Or maybe you live in a nice big house carved from the flesh and bones of the living forest. If a genetic intervention were ever to occur upon the herbal community then I suggest refraining from answering such call to your wooden door. So long as you can hide behind it, you’ll never be burden with the guilt of your ancestors.
I’m being over the top.
