For all our increased brain capacity, for all our apposable thumbs, for all our sapience and sentience, we seem to have managed to muck things up pretty nicely.
At some point along the line, we became our own worst enemy: losing contact with our origins, denying our essential make-up, and developing behaviors contradictory to our best evolutionary interests.
Put simply, we became too smart-ass for our own good. We developed societies that surreptitiously cripple our long-term survival capacity. And we seem incapable — or unwilling — to do anything about it.
Let’s not wind up like this guy, okay?
