ANOTHER POMO THEORIST MAKES MY ARGUMENTS FOR ME

Aparently John Gray, Professor of European Thought at the LSE, has written a book explaining the errors of human exceptionalism (the assumption that we are somehow above nature), and suggests in the book that ‘Homo rapines is only one of very many species, and not obviously worth preserving. Later or sooner, it will become extinct. When it is gone the Earth will recover.
Some of us are trying to prevent that…

    If we’re just like any animal, then our goal would be to reproduce as much as possible, cover as much of the earth as possible and pass on our genes as much as possible. By saying we should do anything other than this, Gray refutes his own point that humans are not different than other animals.How many species, outside of Disney’s The Lion King, care about how their actions affect their environment or whether or not they overhunt game. We are the only species, as far as I know, that even considers the long term effects of our actions.
