Some of these rights include freedom of speech, the right to an attorney, and other common sense rights.

  • Animals But Human Humans Superior Feelings
    687 words
    Erza Pound says that, "man is the superior animal." Superior or not, we all have the same basic habits. When humans are scared they seek shelter, when we are hungry we eat, and when is right, we wish to pass on our genes. So how is it that man is so superior when all our instincts and urges are so primitive? Erza Pound is puzzled by why humans are superior. I think the only reason why humans are superior is because of ignorance. Humans are the only animals that don't come to equilibrium with the...
