Although many people argue that the Mankind’s behavior resembles that of a virus, I feel like our species bears more similarities with cancer cells. The reproduction is uncontrolled, which results in overpopulation, We are not inhibited by contact, predating the resources of the Host, in this case, mother Earth (the resources being air, coal, natural gas, etc.). And now we are even thinking to metastasize (space travel).
But this behavior is not an intrinsic flaw of humanity; it’s just a result of the absence of natural selection processes that could limit population and reproductive behavior. The absence however, has not allowed the Human race to appreciate the gifts we received. If the natural selection process were still active for Mankind, it would have limited the reproduction of our species, and so, allowed us to profit from more natural resources, and more comfort.
