But doing the wrong thing for the right reason is still wrong. How many potential geniuses had been aborted because of financial and limited spacing
No, the answer isn't to cull the population by using a war machine industry, but in finding new industry that aids mankind rather than shackles it
with dogmatic rule that someone somewhere decides who is worthy of existing.
Had we spent our money and put efforts into space-farming for example we could not only harvest solar energy much more efficiently (and develop means
to transmit it via signal as in some researchers trying to develop a cell phone that charges itself off of satellites) but could be growing natural
foods that grow even bigger minus our gravity. Artificial gravity is still needed otherwise stalks would be weak and would bend due to the environment
it is in but the plants in my opinion would grow bigger with less gravity to overcome and more solar radiation promoting photosynthesis
We could also be deep sea farming, or even rooftop farming if we were packed wall to wall.
Necessity is the mother of invention and only by seeking solutions will we grow beyond our needs. Instead what is promoted is that there is a limit
which we self impose upon ourselves and all of society suffers.
How many DU shells can an area sustain before it becomes toxic? How many nukes can we play with before we become so irradiated that our DNA is
corrupted? None. That is simple logic and yet we have mega disasters as the fruits of our labors.
Too little too late as far as this current civilization is concerned because we decided long ago that we should have an economy and like everything
else in abundance it becomes dirt cheap - human life as well.
I do not subscribe to our chosen path nor do I see a solution within its boundaries. Only by expanding our wealth (the population base) can we truly
achieve what is currently unattainable. A stable society - and if you took all emotions bred of our con-questing globally and of many peoples taken
as a single entity (humanity) then you would see that this civilization is schizophrenic and it is no wonder we are so dysfunctional.
We reap what we sow and to claim that one is more valuable over the other breeds nothing but contempt hence we have warfare and arms races.
We have evolved into a shameful race of selfish hedonistic ritualistic beings and on the many is more pain and suffering for someone somewhere. This
ritual of annihilation of others ... the unwanted "useless eaters" as tptb like to label us is nothing but a game of statistics and they sanitize
the immorality by pitting one against the other.
Only by accepting others can we come to accept ourselves as being worthy of survival otherwise it is the same old same old and for the profits of a
few the demoralization and hardship of others is our reality..
There will never be world peace in a militarized society.
