Jamal Khashoggi was murdered on October 2, 2018

October 23, 2018, From the BBC: Turkish president Erdogan has said that ┬ákilling of journalist Jamal Khashoggi was planned days in advance. He said Turkey had strong evidence that Khashoggi was killed in a premeditated and “savage” murder at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul on 2 October. He also called for the suspects to be tried in Istanbul. He demanded Saudi Arabia provide answers about where Khashoggi’s body was and who ordered the operation.

The Saudi Kingdom government planned to kill and then did kill a journalist who had committed no crime. This is lawless and premeditated. This is the same behavior as a gang going out to kill a rival gang member, and the same as chimpanzee males forming a group and killing other chimpanzees. This is being a bad species. Our only worse behaviors are genocide and war.




Bad Species

Badspecies means a species that is not properly defined.

But this blog is dedicated to discussing what human beings do that is not good for themselves, for others, or for the earth.

Even though there is a lot that we do that is kind, thoughtful, and charitable, too much of what we do is bad.
