Animals Don’t Go To War
“You never see animals going to war. Of course there are fights sometimes, but they are individual fights – not world wars with all the crows of the east fighting with all the crows of the west, or all the dogs of India fighting all the dogs of Pakistan. It is not. Dogs are not so foolish, neither are crows. Yes, sometimes they fight, and there is nothing wrong in it. If their freedom is violated they fight, but the fight is individual. It is not a world war.” – Osho “Emotions” pg. 17
This quote made me laugh. What Osho said is very true. Humans claim themselves to be above the animals but in certain regards, animals have a certain natural intelligence that is above our own. If humans are to truly be considered humans that are above all animals then they would be peaceful amongst one another and learn to settle disagreements without resulting in violent behavior. But that is not the case, we are creating war amongst ourselves, we are destroying another, we have gone below the animals with our ego driven desires towards money, power, fame, and sex.
