I would agree with that sentiment wholeheartedly. However, I don't think
it has any meaning in the context of what makes humans different than
other animals in terms of feeling pain, discomfort, or anguish. In fact,
I think humans do bear a greater responsibility because we have the
capacity to understand the consequences of our actions, and the ability
to choose to do otherwise.
