If animals took power, would they behave like humans? Would they make similar mistakes, bringing the world to the brink of an ecological disaster? Would they have the same thirst for power and the same cruelty? Would they choose to rule through demagogy, terror, or totalitarianism? Would they use images to make art or for reprehensible purposes? Would they get along with the “ancients” - meaning the humans, or would they enslave them? Would they be able to resist the temptations of evil and have empathy towards their fellow creatures and all living beings on the planet?
