There is a reason our species acts so appallingly--and a way to stop it
Dear Friends Across the Globe: As we look around the world today, do you wonder how on Earth people can do some of the things they do? I can tell you how...and this explanation will not condone our behavior, but it will help us understand it.
The problem is: we are children.
In their book New World New Mind, Robert Ornstein and Paul Ehrlich noted that if Earth’s history were charted on a single year’s calendar, with midnight January 1 representing the origin of Earth and midnight December 31 the present, the first of our ancestors recognizable as human would not show up until the afternoon of December 31.
