There is not much hope for a happy ending. We are animals. We are stuck in the classic prey/predator model. We will over-consume. We will over-breed. We will degrade our environment. We will lower the quality of life for ourselves and everything around us. Eventually, our population will collapse in misery.
Humans are so special they also get to experience the advanced prey/predator model. This one is the have/have-nots model. This is where the people of wealth and power consume the peasants in their factories and wars.
If we do not change our pattern of behavior, the ultimate predator will consume us. Mother Nature.
