We are violent and opportunistic predators that will take any action to acquire things we think we need.

Violent and opportunistic on an individual, group and species-wide basis.

You can blame God or Darwin depending on your beliefs, but that doesn't change the facts.

As a group/nation we must do what is required to defend against the natural actions of other human groups/nations, lest we become the "prey".

Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund

For the last 23 years, the Palo Alto Weekly Holiday Fund has given away more than $4 million to local nonprofits serving children and families. When you make a donation, every dollar is automatically doubled, and 100% of the funds go directly to local programs. It’s a great way to ensure your charitable donations are working at home.
