Human Exceptionalism

Matrix’s War on Humans

People are beginning to send me examples of anti-humanism in popular culture and environmental advocacy. Someone just sent this quote from The Matrix:

Agent Smith: I’d like to share a revelation that I’ve had, during my time here. It came to me when I tried to classify your species. I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area, and you multiply, and multiply, until every natural resource is consumed. The only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You’re a plague and we are the cure.

Another Kenau Reeves movie. Hmmm. 

It’s really getting anti-human out there. Keep ‘em coming, folks!
