Open Thread: Are Humans A Virus?
My favorite scene from The Matrix is the clip above where Agent Smith tells the captured Morpheus what he thinks about the human race. Besides the interesting observation about humanity, I just love the way Hugo Weaving delivers his lines.
Do you agree with Agent Smith's pessimistic opinion of the human race? Are we just doomed to go on polluting our environment, driving countless species to extinction, and killing each other in conflict after conflict without end? Or, like me, do you cling to the hope, however faint it might be, that the human race collectively can eventually come to its senses and temper its worst impulses?
