No, I’m saying we should be concerned with maximum decency to everything, not just people. The anthropocentric attitude that humans are the only thing to be concerned about has led us to first devaluing the environment and its resources(which humans need), then to devaluing each other in competition for those resources, and now a lack of decency in general as humans are confused about what our purpose is on this planet. By only looking at ways to be minimally decent to humans, we fail to see the maximum potential of humans as contributors to the future. Instead of building a sustainable, thriving new world in a wilderness, we are trying to decide how to survive a while longer on the last MRE. Corporations and government agencies like keeping people useless and competitive. It increases their power and cannon fodder.
