But methinks Agent Smith is closer to the mark:


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 and 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 and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure.

No mammal, bird, insect, toad, fungus or virus develops a 'natural equilibrium' by choice, its forced on them by other competing species and the mechanics of nature itself. The number of species that have ceased to exist through the earths history (that is to say totally 'dead ended'... not through divergence evolved into a new species) utterly dwarfs the numbers of all current living species.

This view that man is some kind of 'special monster' fundamentally different in basic behavior from other forms of terrestrial life is an illusion thought up by people who have the luxury of being happy and well fed. Being happy and well fed is not natures norm.

As a kid I used to think dolphins were cool because I watched flipper. As an adult I recognize that many dolphin species enact what could reasonably be described as pack rape.
