Having more power does not mean that you are more important. It only means that you should be more responsible.

Let us consider our place on Earth. The human species has the power to eradicate all mammals and all trees. This puts the onus of responsibility on us humans to have the least possible impact on the natural environment, because logic makes us conclude that each component in the web of life and the stratum supporting it are important.

Life does not seem to be fair and just, but this does not mean that you should not strive for fairness and justice in your patch and in your area of influence.
