I write these letters during the last days of glory for global humankind....

We owe you these things:

We owe you an image of humankind as an innocent rapist, too ignorant to understand the power it had, too easily amazed by its own antics to ever make thoughtful decisions.

We owe you an explanation of how we came to create the monsters that wrung the planet, profited from and so drove our numbers.

We owe you some advice on how to prevent yourselves from creating such monsters.
