A post, I believe by Hawkeye talking about the lap dogs we've created that wouldn't survive in the wild and a couple of other comments made me think of this.
Have we gone too far with our compassion and willingness to level the playing field? In nature, the strong survive and that ensures the survival of the species. In our world, we have removed the need to be the strongest to survive and is that hurting us?
I believe in compassion and helping others, but does the compassion meter need realigning?
