My first post (yay). So I recently learned of 3 solutions to this world's problems:
Solution 1: After watching National Geographic's special on what would happen if all the Oil in the world dried up I realize this would be a blessing in it's own as the world would make a slow but very very sure transition to a cleaner and more eco-friendly place. "The air would be noticeably cleaner... parking garages and lots transformed into farm land... cleaner water" yes please.
Solution 2: Some cataclysmic event that would reset the human population back to primitive ages so we could live in our own filth. Perhaps this will force people to grasp the reality of our actions and how they effect the very world we depend on AND live in.
Solution 3: a 6-mile wide reset button... unless one can find a way to remove greed, selfishness and jealousy from the human emotional vocabulary.
The human race as a species has surpassed it's natural population balance in the world, this much is obvious as otherwise there would be no overpopulation, famine, and mass landfills. The entire world depends on trade with each other for their country's needs so the better question for the world's problem is: how long until the human race gets it's population check?
It only frustrates me to watch people walk around as if they're something more than an animal, as if humans aren't mammals with pheromones, hormones, and little babies growing inside them. As if they're something better than the rest of the entire natural world. "I need makeup... I need my burger... I need my [WTFE it is now]" wrapped up and so dependent on the materialistic world believing and buying anything thrown at them w/a cool label and brand name... I identify these individuals as "Cattle". They'll eat anything, follow anyone who's got a loud mouth, and don't think twice until it's too late. Logically, the only facts that separate humans from other mammals are: we've developed technology, complex vocal communication, and we've learned to tame animals and farm plants for food. The first two are debatable (depending on your definition of technology) leaving only the last to be solid.
I'm going to use this page to call out a number of issues that people don't want to talk about, you know, the things you never talk about but just know a little or nothing about. The world in which we live in is not secure, it is not a happy wonderful care-free place, everything is not perfect in any way-shape-or-form, we are led by the rich and greedy and nurtured to believe anyone in any authority-type position as being helpful, trustworthy, care giving, someone who looks out for our personal safety and best interests, and someone who we should submit to at any time for any reason.... The world in which we live in is a lie. I could get all sciency and fictional and relate all this to The Matrix (which the whole idea is similar to many other arguments) except theres no plug.
Remember: there is always something more than what you see. There are always multiple possibilities in everything. More to come.
