You read it right, folks. There will be casualties, but after it is all said and done it will then be a better world much different than before.
All the laws the planet has been compiling have got to go. The world needs to reset and go off into a new direction. Which of you also hope for a 3rd
This is the self-centeredness of the human species talking. As a species we always wish and strive to make the world a better place for us. Ever since
man developed this so-called intelligence
, every attempt to use it has cost the planet dearly. First we developed the spear; this enabled man
to hunt more efficiently, resulting in the extinction of thousands of other species.
We built houses, cities, states, nations...to help make us safer and to protect us against harsh weather. Great for us, not so great for the forests.
And with the destruction of forests, more extinctions.
We needed fuel to keep us warm and to manufacture all of the comforts we have today. To get this fuel, more forests cut down for firewood. Natural
resources needed, such as coal, oil and metals, had to be ripped from the earth, with the spewing of coal and oil smoke poisoning the air. Nuclear
waste is being buried in the earth, rendering that land useless for hundreds of thousands of years.
So, though I'm in complete agreement with the idea of a swift reduction in the human population, what would a third world war do the planet? We
won't simply go bang-bang you're dead to the enemy. In this war we will poison each other's lands with biological weapons, killing off SOOOO many
other species, spray defoliants to wipe out whole forests. It would be a miracle if nuclear weapons weren't used this time, whether by missiles or
dirty bombs. Fires would rage for days, weeks, and perhaps even months.
No no, we don't want this war.
