The first response to something new and shiny is to take ownership of it and exclude everyone else, to keep it for yourself. Humans are not an innocent species: we consume and prey on the environment and those around us to live; we ruin and destroy and move away; we are the disruptors seeking our own advantage. As newly born, when there are no consequences, when we can consume without contribution, we learn these behaviours, and this privileged life makes us cruel and selfish. Life teaches us to expect more and if it isnít given, to take it by force.
