re Alfred Wallace quote

The seeming contradiction of a rising accumulation of wealth and a rising amount of poverty is an interesting phenomenon that it is a very central theme.

If human beings are basically good, then why don't the more capable share with the less capable? In the Western industrialized countries they do, to a greater or lesser extent. And it is a never-ending debate. Some people say that if he rich are forced to share with the poor then they are less inclined to be productive (and dominate nature so much).

Isn't that a good thing? More animals, less global warming and a whole lot more go along with that. I like to believe that human beings are good but this very thing Wallace talks about leads me to believe that, on average,we are selfish and would destroy ourselves and our planet rather than share with the less fortunate.

Human beings are the number one bad-ass animal on the planet, no doubt.
