It was the God’s design that all living beings on this earth have enough for their survival for as long as it is possible. And, it had been the human design that while, today, a fifth of the human population enjoys nearly half of the world’s income; another fifth has not enough to eat and is compelled to survive only with less than one tenth of the world’s income.
By relying on the popular meaning of the word ‘humanity’, we can say that the humanity is about following the God’s design. The good part is that four fifth of the world population is not responsible for flouting the God’s design, but the ugly part is that a big majority of the human population has allowed the God’s design to be flouted.
Compassion glorifies humanity, but being unaware and passive lowers its dignity.
