While retaining all the rights that belong to a human being as a citizen of the United States, and while remaining a citizen of the United States, I hereby resign as a member of the human race. The reasons are many.
- The quality of empathy possessed by human beings is shallow and unevenly distributed.
- The potential of violence without reason is extreme and only weakly resisted.
- The greed of humanity is such that even the impending destruction of the race called human does not diminish it.
- The immorality of humanity as measured by my own perspectives is such that it is intolerable.
- I see no hope for its continuance.
I will endeavor to add to the list as the year 2015 progresses. Although I see no hope… if anything, anything at all, occurs that offers hope, I shall mention it.
