It would indeed be a bold and stupid move to even consider such a weapon.
Though we hate to think of the possibilities, most of us are Momma's baby, Papa's maybe. Few can with complete accuracy, trace our genetic bloodlines,
so a race based biological weapon, is a sure way to wipe out the planet, especially with an agent as unstable as a virus.
How does killing thousands of innocent, poor and struggling people, here in America, China or anywhere else, change any of the problems we face each
day? What is our goal? What do we hope to achieve by killing people in other countries? What is it that is worth your life, the life of your children
or loved ones? They tell us they are our enemy; if this is true, why? What have I done to make them hate me? We are smart enough to know the truth, it
is just so stomach wrenching to have to look at the truth for what it is.
The people that are supposed to be our enemy are most likely a lot worse off than we are. They have legitimate excuses for believing the lies and the
bullcrap that is being dispensed by their leaders. Most have no television, computers, smart phones or libraries to allow them the opportunity for
looking beyond what they are being told.
The struggle to provide sustenance, I won’t call it food, for themselves and family, takes up almost all their time. The rest of the time is spent
trying to provide a safe place for their loved ones to lay their head for the night. Sleep is always scarce when you have to remain ever vigilant of
intruders, whether they come on two legs or four. They don’t have the luxury of the internet at their fingertips or ATS, they have to believe what
their leaders tell them, elsewise, the conditions of their world would make no sense.
We know better, but to believe otherwise makes us responsible. It forces us to see ourselves for what we truly are. A group of people that are afraid.
Afraid to believe and afraid not to believe, but more afraid of losing what we think we have. Afraid to standup when we know by not doing so will seal
our fate just as surely as fighting back; it just makes it feel like it is buying us some time. Time is running out and it is not showing us favor.
The problems of our world are not going to end with war. The only end to be seen will be the death of our world. Problems will continue to exist, just
maybe not for us.
