Still. We love lions and care for them. Admire certain traits about them and look up, think much of their majestic primate being. Nature and all. We do not hate them, nor want to kill them, and I wonder why. If you can forgive a lion for his brutality and cruelty, understanding that it's his nature and it takes time to tame if need be, furthermore why not your fellow men?
We are, after all, at the core of it all, technology and years of gained knowledge aside, truly still very much the same primitive animal cavemen were.
We are but, Animals.
Do we love lions? Yes we do. Certain traits, their worst traits as a matter of fact, are usually that which we love most. Their strength. Their pride. Their violence and sense of survival. Nobody really eats a lion. But lions, like wolves, like birds and fishes, are but like us. Animals, and truly primitive in our own sorts.
If education and knowledge has stolen anything from us, it is the ability to be truly human.
Raw, random & ridiculous.
But so truthful, so honest, so unimproved and bare.
Not that I don't like life now, but geez. Think how different things would be!
