Why so weak?

The strength of a culture is its capacity for appropriation and transformation; its weakness is its demand for assimilation and stasis.

The strength to not blame.

The weak blame others because they must. The strong assume responsibility because they can.

We are weak, cruel, and ignorant.

Nevertheless, human beings are my kind of abject and abandoned creatures.

Is humanity educable?

Likely. Can it be made less fallible, weak, and contemptible? Doubtful.
