You mean the exploitation of life.
Your views are solely based on your feelings about your situation. It only becomes a resource when you actively need it. Wounded soldiers and the
The wounded soldiers need the tech developed from oil and the blood to be treated.. and sick people do to.
Tech that has been facilitated by oil has allowed for us to be able to treat people with sicknesses.
lets say that we today run out of oil and the problem is not so much finding the blood but also running the world that has come to depend on oil
your grandmother bumps her elbow and she tries to call for help.... and her cell does not work nor her net nor her landline....
the techs that keep those things running can't maintain the network... because they can't drive to cell towers, to broken cables or any other network
they get word to the EMTs and they can't get there cuz their ambulance does not have fuel and neither does anyone she knows.
they carry her and get to the hospital and they are like well we found some platelets but no none can drive them here they are bringing it on a horse
run on blood resource.
see where I am going with this.
I get that blood is important but it is quite an over simplification you are making.
people who have oil have been able to improve their quality of life and extend life. Oil is important not more important but to an extent important
enough that one resources that can be viewed more important is acceptable to spend in getting a less 'valuable" resource.
If my family was starving I would shed my blood to get it for them. I can argue food is more important and we pervert it and take it for granted...
I think oil costs more than corn.. with food we can't do squat.
i can even go further and argue that water is more important than oil.. yet i can open my hose and waste hundreds of gallons and pay 40$ that month.
but I get this is an emotional response to your situation.
sorry about your grandma.
