There's an old saying that you can tell if a people are good or not by how they treat their animals. We have a dismal track record unfortunately. And IMO, it is only getting worse.

If there was only 1 Bluefin Tuna left in the ocean it would be worth so much money that literally millions of people would be climbing all over each other trying to be the one who got to kill it. It all comes down to money and that's how most people really are in real life. The world right now is being driven by greed, vanity, and shallowness. All the new technology like smartphones that satiates people's desire for instant gratification only makes it worse. It's like people are being drugged and ungrounded until they no longer understand what's really important in life.
