...Keep in mind Psilocybin mushrooms, peyote cactus, Cannabis, and others would be here weather we were or not. We had nothing to do with their
creation, we just found an interesting use for them. Synthetic drugs, often the worst of them, we did create, but using drugs is a choice that does
not directly lead to murdering someone else or robbing banks, it's the bad choices you make about those drugs that causes it. Drugs are not
inherently evil, but if a person isn't careful then they could do something stupid and get themselves killed. You can do something stupid with a
match and kill others, does that make them evil?
Weapons are used by most species, even if it's just a bunch of chimpanzees throwing rocks. We did not create all that is bad, we just use it that
way. We did not invent uranium, just the use for it that is incredibly destructive. We have the ability to be a peaceful race, if we gave up this
blood feud we have with nature and lived in harmony with it. I don't believe that it is possible with the decadent greco-roman societal mindset we
perpetuate every day, but it's possible. The Indians lived in perfect harmony with nature, and the Zuni and Hopi tribes had 300 years with one
murder. Also note the asian-indians, and their monks. I don't see much violence, racism, hatred and other things going on there.
The westernized culture? Yes, there is no doubt that it will kill itself in one way or another, and I will scream in joy from the mountaintops when it
does. But humanity is not always bad, and if we hurry we can still avoid too many... negative... consequences of our actions.
