Stating that everything on the planet is a failure because it hasn't evolved to our level is like saying that anarchism doesn't work because no anarchist territory has ever lasted for more than a few years.

it also sounds like what I would call the "whig theory of evolution", as it assumes that humans and a human-like state are an inevitable pinnacle that all evolution leads towards, just like the whig theory of history thinks about liberal democracy.
