Hobbes describes the life of Man in the State of Nature as "solitary, poor, nasty, brutish, and short."

So how has Society improved on this? Well, now it's "nasty, brutish, and long." Ah, the marvels of modernity.

You ask me, I say it's been this way since the Cro-Magnon rubbed out the Neanderthals. Given the last 10-20 thousand years or so, on a geologic scale of time, it looks like "intelligence" as an evolutionary mutation is still in its "fair test" stage. We're now at a stage where we can turn the tables and mutate nature instead of it mutating us. Perhaps the problem, tho, is that if we want to go monkeying around with nature, maybe it is our own nature we should monkey around with first.

Given most people won't touch a genetically-engineered tomato, I have my doubts about anything further up on the food chain....

my two cents,
