Group discussion on Humanity

Humanity should come naturally to human beings for it is their very existence that is describes humanity; it is the quality of being human collectively. Irony is humans starting to lack compassion and humanity. The widespread terror and mass killing is the proof that people are losing the very quality that makes them human.

In this age when humanity seems to be losing its sheen, the Group Discussion topics on humanity seem to be becoming quite favourite among the selection panel for entrance exams and placements.

So, here we get you some objective information, quotes, a complete list of all the topic you can expect around Humanity in the Group Discussions.

Some quotes that can be used in Group Discussions on Humanity:

"Life is to be lived, not controlled; and humanity is won by continuing to play in face of certain defeat."
- Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man

"I love mankind, he said, "but I find to my amazement that the more I love mankind as a whole, the less I love man in particular."
- Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

"The planet will be here, and we'll be gone. Another failed mutation; another closed-end biological mistake."
- George Carlin

Humanity is lost:

1. Terror: Every terror attack just proves that humanity is lost in the souls of those who keep sponsoring these inhuman acts and those who blindly follow them.

2. Hatred: For every terror activity there is more hatred directed at one or the other community and innocent blood is spilled in the process.

3. Climate change: It is evident all over the world. Glaciers are melting. Smog fills our lungs and then the President of America makes a statement that defies global warming. Yes, let’s ignore that it is happening.

4. Poverty: There is wastage everywhere. Storage system is bad. Obesity too is on the rise and yet a large part of the population sleeps empty stomach each day.

Humanity was never lost:

1. Charity: There is no shortage of people donating for the good cause. There are volunteers working selflessly towards helping refugees and immigrants everywhere.

2. Love and acceptance: It is heart warming to see a social activist adopt a badly malnourished African boy and heal him back to life.

3. Positive efforts: For every bad happening in the world, there are people working double towards world peace and poverty eradication. It counts.

4. Awareness: People have become more aware this day and do not easily fall blindly into the ditch created for political benefits.


As long as the human race exists, humanity will find a way in between all the terror, hatred, pollution and bots taking over the world one day. All it needs is doing something about what we believe in instead of sitting back and complaining.

We hope that you find this information useful in dealing with your Group Discussion topics on and around Humanity.
