“only human” bothers me a great deal. It is as if we are so lowly that the primacy G-d bestowed upon man has been rendered meaningless and ‘human’ has become an excuse for all wrongdoing in the world when it SHOULD BE the exact opposite. Human as an excuse is actually SUBhuman because HUMAN aspires to be MORE, not less; BETTER, not worse. In G-d’s Image. It means something.
Well said, Mesta.
Humans are meant to rise above their animal nature; if they don’t, they are not “human” - they are four legged animals.
