Cute. Very cute.

You do realize of course that General Ursus was making a commentary(and a sick one at that)about the human condition and its rotten habit of having a very low regard for life? Especially its own species?
We read from the Twenty-Third Scroll, Ninth Verse:

23:9

"Beware the beast man, for he is the devil's pawn. Alone among God's primates, he kills for sport, or lust, or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother's land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him! Drive him back into his jungle lair--for he is the harbinger of death."
Collequially expressed, but entirely accurate in its description of the human equation. If not the shambolic state it is still in.

We read from the book of Colonel George Taylor:

"Does man, that marvel in the universe, that glorious paradox who have sent me to the stars, still make war against his brother? Does he keep his neighbor's children starving?"

"I can't help thinking that somewhere in the universe, there has to be something better than Man. Has to be."
