The history of various hominid tribes that intermarried and produced offspring, including homo sapiens with neanderthal, suggests a failure, at some point, to continue to regard non-“human” persons as persons, and a shift toward domination and genocide. This same flaw in our ethos determines our attitude toward other animal species today.
