Humanity's inhumanity to humanity is inhuman!
"Humane" comes from the same root word, which means to show compassion and benevolence, and the "humanities" are the study on what has a civilizing or refining effect on people.
We might have to find another root word for those ideas. As I read on twitter somewhere this morning, to those in power, to be human is considered a hostile act.
