WHAT DEFINES ‘HUMAN’?
—“Is it possible that you have too high a standard for what qualifies as human?”– Joel Harvey
Well, that begs the question standard for what purpose?
1 – For cooperating commercially (trade on means) – yes.
2 – For socializing (exchanging information – on ends) – no.
3 – For political organization (cooperating on ends and means) – absolutely not.
One does not let wild animals, domesticated animals, domesticated pets, children, or insufficiently domesticated and trained humans to influence that which they lack the agency to decide without harm to others.
