I agree to an extent with what you are saying with an additional thought.
Capitalism does not work. As long as the world bases all of its advancements on a monetary system, we will always be held back by the very thing most
people seek, wealth. New technologies and advanced medicine will always cost too much or have no value in bringing to market. I mean, why cure
cancer, there is more money in treating it. Why solve energy problems, there is more money is charging for it, cheaper to stay the way things are.
Why solve crime, more money in keeping the current system of government, enforcement and incarceration. If mankind truly wants to advance, feed the
ones who cannot afford, heal the sick ones who are not fortunate enough to be healthy, allow everyone to have, and not be without, give to the world
the advancements and tech we really have, or are capable of, we have to get off a monetary system.
Some of these things will come at a cost though. Freedom will have to be restricted in some cases. Such as, childbirth will have to be limited, due
to increased lifespans and population, we have to control the sprawl of man. Eating habits will have to change, to remain healthy, no more fast food
byproducts and genetically modified foods. Everyone will have to contribute to a more socialistic style society, willing to take part and do for all
for and for each to gain.
The bottom line is, what is our true focus as a species and not as a man or woman or country? Why can't we all just evolve to the next step of
achievement and get past where this world is now?
Right now there is the most abundant resource on this planet that is a perfect, renewable, and emission free source of energy. Hydrogen. If we burn
it, we make water vapor. It can be electrolyzed from water, and the world is surrounded by it. We will put quite a bit more vapor in the air, but
who cares, there are plenty of places that need more rain.
At the current rate we are going, we will extinct ourselves. Forget about comets, earthquakes, volcanoes, and other natural disasters, we will
undoubtedly create some reason to destroy ourselves or this planet. This world has an almost perfect way of recycling itself and renewing itself, but
there is one fault to this cycle, MANKIND.
