“Man’s respect and awe of predators turned to hatred when man’s lifestyle changed from tribal hunters – when he ceased to be a kindred spirit living by his wits as a hunter. And instead, took the land himself.
He took the land without forethought once he began his agrarian mode of life, his domesticated plants and animals having priority over all else. No longer did he share the land with his fellow creatures – suddenly they had no rights. The world became an extension of his egocentric needs and values- and egosphere – arrogant and blind indifference to all life but his own.”
