Savages

Who are we to pretend not to be savages?

In the debate regarding the death penalty I find those of us in support of such a move to exhibit a level of blood lust that is a bit disturbing...
Why is it so important to KILL another human being for a crime they did? How does that make us better than they are? Because we BELIEVE that we are justified?

I am amazed at others (and myself) every time i hear of the woman that killed her husband when she found out he molested their daughter... the sense Satisfaction we get from knowing "justice" was served shows that just beneath the surface we all hold a level of primal savagery that we keep under wraps under the premise of civilized behavior.....

The truth is we have only just given ourselves rules and guidelines to release our more primal urges. That's all society is:  an institution that sets rules and mores that allow us to "Constructively" channel the savage in us all......

Yet we would like to think we are better than the beasts of the field..... in a sense we are... and then again we are not.
