—“By that you mean some people are not human( morality or physiology)?”— Natty Kanya

Just as children do not have the self-control of adults, many adults lack the self control of others. While we may learn self control of our bodies. We may learn self control of our emotions. We may NOT learn self control of our thoughts. We use the term ‘Agency’ to describe independence of our thoughts from physical and emotional impulses, from the bias of our intuitions, and from the bias of our thoughts. In this sense, some people are fully human (they have developed agency) or they are not fully human (they have not developed agency) and are still ‘animals’.
