If so, you can't compare humans to other animals in all respects. The resources at our disposal are much greater. Furthermore, given the difference in degree to which our species is aware of its surrounding and events taking places in our lives, the mental consequences of our decisions and actions are greater. Other animals do not have the same degree of freedom that we do, in the sense that our resources give us options. Nature does not afford those options to other species. We're lucky.
