We all know we live in a very difficult time now
All the Earthquakes and the fukushima disaster
The inevitable Wars in the ME
all the mass animals death and deceases
corrupted systems and government that think only for themself
getting richer and the poor getting poorer
with the worldwide economy crashing like dominos
We are on the verge of many boiling points on the four corners of planet earth
and yet we see people acting in delusion and dreams that everything wil be fine
but it is not .. things are getting worst and more people are getting killed everyday
even strange trumpet sounds in the sky like alarming us of something coming
I think people will become less greedy and less delusional
once they have in face their own Annihilation
Everything is so messed up and it look like all hell is about to break out
everyone will be taken by surprise if the SHTF for real .. no one can be fully prepared for that
and this is when we will have no choice to change our ways of life ..
for adapting humans are good at that
creating a better generation of humans that will care more
not to repeat the same mistakes like in old times
While making the thread i just remember about the movie "The Day the Earth Stood Still"
when she try to convince Klaatu not to wipe humankind
Klaatu: Your problem is not technology. The problem is you. You lack the will to change.
Professor Barnhardt Then help us change.
Klaatu I cannot change your nature. You treat the world as you treat each other.
Professor Barnhardt: But every civilization reaches a crisis point eventually.
Klaatu Most of them don't make it.
Professor Barnhardt Yours did. How?
Klaatu: Our sun was dying. We had to evolve in order to survive.
Professor Barnhardt: So it was only when your world was threated with destruction that you became what you are now.
Professor Barnhardt Well that's where we are. You say we're on the brink of destruction and you're right. But it's only on the brink that
people find the will to change. Only at the precipice do we evolve. This is our moment. Don't take it from us, we are close to an answer.
So at the point we are now .. i think we dont have any choice to change for our futur generations sakes
it is just sad that people would not have change before that
The good new is : Yes we have all the potential to be great and we will be
the human species need sometimes a big kick in the butt .. i mean motivation to grow up
