    I've been reading some of Alexander Pope's writings recently, most notably An Essay on Man. Much of it ponders the essense of man, and his place in creation. Pope, in the third Epistle (or chapter, if you will,) argues that man is no more entitled to anything than anything else. Some key stanzas... "Has God, thou fool! work'd solely for thy good, Thy joy, thy pastime, thy attire, thy food? Who for thy table feeds the wanton fawn, For him as kindly spread the flow'ry lawn: Is it for thee the lark ascends and sings? Joy tunes his voice, joy elevates his wings. Is it for thee the linnet pours his throat? Loves of his own and raptures swell the note.  [...] Know, nature's children all divide her care; The fur that warms a monarch, warm'd a bear. While man exclaims, 'See all things for my use!' 'See man for mine!' replies a pamper'd goose: And just as short of reason he must fall, Who thinks all made for one, not one for all." What are your thoughts on this?
