We are born human, evidently. But this evidence seems to get lost the very next moment. Ever after our birth we have to prove that we are human, that we are human enough to be worthy called and treated a human being.
Human beings are caught up in the paradox that they are born human beings, but have to become a human being. The human being has to achieve humanity, because being born a human being is not worth any more than being born an animal.
The big word humanity is a big variable. Sometimes it simply means to have the right attributes: the right skin colour, the right passport, the right health data, the right college diploma, the right party membership, etc.
Why? Because those who judge humanity are not more human than others, all they are ahead of “us” is to dispose of means of domination.
