There are two types of people in the world, humans and mankind. One can maintain a healthy homeostasis on planet earth naturally, while the other can not survive in Earth’s atmosphere without extreme accommodations.

There is a difference between ‘hue-mans’ and mankind. Mankind is more like a Neanderthal than a ‘hue-man’. Humans have existed on planet earth for millions of years, while mankind has yet to reach 10,000 years of existence.
The common misconception is that all people on planet earth are the same, that all of us are humans. We are all NOT of the same biological circumstance. There are obviously some commonalities between the two types, but that doesn’t make us the same species. That’s like saying every creature in the ocean has the same biological circumstance because they all live under water. This is important because the two different species of man (the original man and mankind) have totally different prerequisites for existing and thriving on planet earth. Our biological circumstance has different needs and unless those needs are catered to we’d all be maintaining a lifestyle conducive to a different species, ‘hue-mans’ and mankind alike.
