When I think about it, most of humanity's advantages, privileges and deepest miseries stem from an assumption of superiority over the rest of nature. Sooner or later, this placing of our whims over other's needs was bound to encroach into our view of 'other' humans too that we see as different. Our own worst enemies will always be ourselves - humans.

For humans, their worst enemy is always another human, while their best friend may or may not be a human.

For all other creatures, their worst enemy is also always a human, while their best friend may or may not be of their own species.

What do you think?

I tend to agree with you on this. Animals kill for food but some humans kill for greed. Animals mark their territory for survival but some humans seek to possess others' territory for more gain. Animals have no religion but humans need religion to teach them to do good.
