What makes us any better?
We humans think of ourselves as the most "intelligent" and civilized out of all creatures on Earth. We can't see that we are the least intelligent also the most cruel and savage creatures to ever roam the planet. We're the only ones to kill for the sake of killing. We wage pointless wars against each other and commit acts of barbarism that NO other organisms would do. We steal, lie, kill, hate, abuse, discriminate and enslave others ... the list never ends and we call animals insignificant.
We were put on this planet just as they were, and if it weren't for evolutionary luck we would have been wiped out by others a long time ago. We have the capacity for emotion and knowledge, which we use that for all of the wrong reasons. Sure things happen in nature, but they aren't forced to happen by organisms on the outside and if you do it for pure pleasure, they aren't the animal, you are.
Anyone can just say "they're crickets" but can't say why they're reasoning is just.
