Amongst the many other things we have bred in this present generation is the incapability to conjure genuine feelings towards others. It truly is a shame when we have mastered the cold numbness in our hearts towards other people simply because they do not belong to the same click we have, the community we belong to, the religion we adhere to or the country we came from.

It has been this inherent ability to stick together as a species that have allowed our race to survive the cruel and crude evolutionary process. Yet, over the years we have totally neglected this essential trait for our very survival. As an evolving species we have endured the rough process by thriving in communities with properly accorded roles and willfully carried out practices. One of these evolutionary traits that have made the human species surpass the strict laws of survival in nature is our inherent affinity towards our own kind–one that has diminished significantly with the advent of technology. Today we have almost totally untangled every fabric of the very thing that accorded us the term “humanity”.

We simply go on our daily lives–plying our trades, enjoying our privileges, relishing our chosen forms of recreation totally oblivious of the pitiful plight some of our kind are in. As long as things are all right we have simply not shown enough concern to those unknown to us. We have built illusory barriers as an excuse to keep our minds away from our biological inherited trait necessitated for survival.

We have just grown so desensitized by our selfishly created boundaries. The very reason for our survival has all been reduced to a philosophical argument only whispered in the halls of universities and philanthropic gatherings. Distinctions caused by religion,race,nationality,ethnic background,skin color and status have stripped our humanity away from us.

Today we are no longer homo sapiens. Our very extinction is just at the doorstep anticipating the time when the next generation of our species takes control and palpably mark the end of days for our very species. We have left no lasting legacy of humanity, but being inhumane.
