Homo sapiens is as much a product of nature as the whitetail and the wolf. Each of us is a natural force.
To the extent there is such a thing as human exceptionalism, it lies in the fact that human excellence is not a matter of genetics but rather it is fostered. We're not born with it, we make movements towards it. We can gain wisdom. We can become courageous. We can learn temperance. We can become practiced in justice.
I've know some people born with two strikes against them who went on to be models of human excellence.
We each have the power to live according to human nature, we all have the potential to be excellent sapiens.
If change is called for,
- put down the Coors Lite,
- turn off the television,
- stop praying to be changed,
- bid your former life goodbye.
