The problem is simple its the human ego. The human ego like a blob Amoeba has grown and grown after millenia and centuries to become what it is today,
a big blog of ego contained on a small blue world, on the edge of know where in particular.
It is a bit like a huge beast which has outgrown his cage, the beast of humanity has become angry and agitated in its confines.
The solution presently being adopted?
The current philosophy being applied is a solution developed by the human ego itself, which is to subdue the beast into servitude, by using all means
of technological tools developed to curtail its rights to move freely in the cage.
The problem with this approach?
This course of action cant work because human beings are social creatures by nature and because such gives humans the mechanism to adopt a group
psychological mentality. Human beings when placed under extreme stresses will always adopt a group mentality as way to improve their survival
This always leads inevitably to a mob psyhcology which easily embraces little excuses for use of extreme measures. Just look at the middle east
attrocities committed by mob acts as one good example.
The real solution. The only real solution is to give humanity a greater enviroment in which to extend and challenge its ego. This naturally means
humanity is at a turning point now where it must extend itself into space or collapse on its own weight and perish. Yes im talking about building
spaceships, starships call them what you will which can carry thousands of humans at a time to destinations out there where colonies can be set up.
The only thing that can and ever will be able to squash the human ego is the vastness of space.
