What if what sets Humans apart is our awareness of Darwinism and Natural Selection through Competition? We can observe how even many animals have their own kind of hierarchy or social behavior even if it just the alpha male in a pack or the queen in a bee hive.
We can also note that even though this has great results leading to species we see today, the process is cruel, often wasteful, and the lives animals lead in the wild is often brutal. As human beings we can appreciate this process as a part of our history, but we should choose to reject it and find a better way.
