Humanity in The Lowest Animal by Mark Twain

            In the story, "The Lowest Animal" by Mark Twain, Twain states that humanity has become the worst it can be, but it can be saved. Mankind is too greedy and too oppressive to make a change. Humanity is so bad that we kill each other for the dumbest reasons. I agree with Twain's statement that humanity is at the worst it can be, but refute that it can be improved.
             The people of this world are too cruel to be saved. According to Twain, he states "Man is the only animal that robs his helpless fellow of his country-takes possession of it and drives" (Twain 472). Humanity is the only living things that rob each other, who steal and then even kill. Twain even says that animals are more intelligent and more respectful that humans themselves because they actually can get along, and are the only living things that don't have a war. Humans feel good after doing something they should not, it's just this monster within them. He is the only one who causes pain for others, just for the pleasure of doing it. For example, in an NBC article called "57 Percent Oppose Trump's Muslim Proposal" Trump proposes "he wants to get rid of all muslims" (Murray). This is cruelty and racial. Trump is trying to ban all muslims entering the US because he believes they are all dangerous to us and he believes they will all bomb us. This just is not fair, because some muslims are innocent and don't have anything to do with Isis. Society is getting worse and worse, and it can't be saved, because people are too cruel to change.
             In addition, mankind is also shown that it can't be changed through immorality. In Mullen's view, he states in his article that "One of the women assaulted by former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw said she feared for her life when he pulled her over last year and forced her to perform a sex act on him." (Mullen) This is just absurd. Humanity is getting worse and worse every moment.
