I'd like my family and myself to survive following a hypothetical calamity, it would be hard, but life is precious...even Idiotic, corrupt, greedy
That's my view. We get one chance here...one.
Those that control, kill, manipulate and corrupt know exactly who they are and exactly what they're doing...and why do they do what they do?
Because despite their business accumen, their family 'pedigree', their University qualifications, they are essentially weak, idiotic and pathetic
unable to see past the $/£/Euro building up in their accounts...but mostly because the rest of us, who might not all be saints exactly, but
'normal' everyday people...allow them to get away with their machinations to the point where they are now.
They are now in positions where they're pretty much untouchable in a legal sense, and with security resembling small private armies, pretty much
untouchable in a physical sense too.
Whatever we think of the actions of most of these types of people, you can't argue with their organisational skills, they have installed like-minded,
greed and power hungry (among other negative attributes) people in positions of power (naturally) within politics and high profile corporations,
positions of authority within the Judiciary and various agencies including Law enforcement, positions of influence within mass media and
entertainments industries, within education and higher learning, within financial institutions...in fact in every major area that has the potential to
not only control most of the aspects of the average persons life, but in positions that if left 'straight and honest', could be used as tools by the
honest to concievably shine a light on these corruptors and bring them to justice.
They have the bases covered.
When you ask yourself the question 'would i want my family and I to survive and struggle in a 'reset world'..you have to look past the inevitable
struggles that would be coming your way, and ask yourself one simple question:
'Would you rather your family and yourself died, and allow those people causing the downfall and misery to survive and thrive instead of you and
Who deserves to survive...those who cause the problems, or those that have to endure the problems forced upon them? I know what i'd choose.
As for seed vaults...i agree with you.
It's a token gesture, and how can anyone be sure that if and it's only an if, the world suffered a huge calamity there is NO way of knowing if the
areas where the vault or vaults are situated would be left unaffected or not.
The smartest course would be multiple identical land based sites, well away from coastal areas, preferably at high elevations. If 80% of the sites are
lost, there would still be plenty of biodiversity left intact.
If i were running the planning for such an event, space based vaults would feature fairly heavily too.
In my minds eye, i would use a system where stable orbit satellites would carry specially designed re-entry pods, to be released when onboard sensors
detect predetermined conditions on Earth for safe and effective seed pod release.
Each pod would contain many smaller sphere, filled with seeds of multiple varieties of plants and crops.
After re-entry burn, and at a given altitude, these sphere would be ejected and their contents released over target areas.
The seeds would be able to drift with the air currents and fall to Earth to germinate naturally.
Such a system would guarentee biodiversity following a cataclysm, and would not require Human intervention to initiate it...it would be automatic.
If there are very small groups of surviving Humans, by the time conditions on Earth are determined to be favourable to the seeds, Humanity may well
have forgotten these Seed vaults even exist, much less posses the expertise to access and best disseminate the seeds...a hunter-gatherer existence and
loss of much of our knowledge will mean even if we know the vaults existed, we might not know where, or cannot reach them...assuming they survived
intact at all.
Automatic release and dispersion would be the way to go.
Whatever happened, i'd certainly not wish for the 'elite' to inherit the Earth, i'd want good people, like my family to restart the world in the
most beneficial and egalitarian manner possible...and to do that, good people have to survive to at least balance out the bad people.
