Morality, Itself, Is The Problem...

It is the most disturbing, scratch that, perplexing thing, to consider that people, as a whole, are not living for themselves, but for a system; when you truly consider that the system (which was created by humans) is designed to conquer humans and their ‘nature’. If we need such governance, than why can we trust the system that came from us, the corrupt?
In almost every case of war within history, it has been to bring peace or exercise some moral obligation. Like bringing civilization to the ‘savages’ who would have lived meaningful lives if they had not been slaughtered by the thousands by so-called ‘civilized’ nations. Or the executions of so-called ‘heretics’ by religious factions, who only feared losing control if the common man would only think for himself. And for scientific breakthroughs, which tortured thousands to advance the overall ‘knowledge’ of human kind.
It would seem to me that there is, in fact, no ounce of faith in ourselves within humanity. If we must always turn to caging, torturing, or killing our own species to keep the peace and/or order. It is regrettable that we cannot live as the animals do, without morality, and living on instinct, however ‘primitive’ it may seem to ‘higher’ thinkers, when you analyze it: no animal has ever done such things, nor will it ever, because it lacks the very thing we so proudly revere. And yet, that very thing is what has led us along the path of destruction since the beginnings of time.
