That is were your wrong. Society has a big effect on humanity and wild animals. Why do you think Your cat is called a domestic animal. Because your cat went from wild to domesticated. How does that happen SOCIETY.
I have always had at least one cat since I was two, and now at the age of almost 40, I am without one, since my last cat died two weeks ago. People keep saying that I should replace him, by getting another cat. But anyone who has had cats or other pets know that this is not possible, because they are all individuals, just as humans are.
As far as human society is concerned, I believe in individuality. There seems however, a fear amongst many people that they won't "fit in," so they copy everything their peers are doing. However a society which expects everyone to share the same values or have the same religious beliefs, or wear the same clothes is one which cannot develop, and one where individual rights are not considered.
