I have no idea why I felt the need to make this blog.
Let's start off simple. Humans are selfish and greedy. It's part of our nature. No one likes admitting to that, but it's always there, lurking, waiting for a chance to rear it's ugly head. We emphasise on moral codes, but sadly, ours is a world where moral values are merely used as a tool for personal gain. If we go back into the medieval times, the code of honour for a knight...yeah. You notice how it didn't stop Mordred from rebelling against his own king.
Let's not go into politics, though. Something more fundamental. Something that's been present since our great x1000 ancestors, the first humans, the Homo Sapiens, they called them, existed. Something that's been worsening over the course of history.
People say that humans die to diseases most. That's rubbish. The biggest threats to humans are humans. We are a race that were born killers, and all these milleniums have only made us better at killing each other. From the prehistoric times where humans brained each other with wooden clubs, to the Stone Age, the Bronze Age...The crossbows of the Medieval Age, the muskets and cannons of the Renaissance Age...to today. Heat-seeking missiles, small arms, nuclear weapons. In the old days humans killed each other by stabbing. Today we kill each other with buttons.
And the thing is, for the sake of "security", more and more weapons are being built. No matter how strong or fit a human is, one bullet is all it takes to kill them. Yet we are researching on how to make our weapons hold more bullets, shoot faster, and kill more people.
And the sad thing is, more than half of the world thinks it's perfectly fine. That we'll never break out into another world war.
Not to put too fine a point on it, but bitch, please. All it takes is one trigger-happy person to start off that spark, which will turn into an inferno. I mean, we already have some prominent examples which I shall not name.
So yeah, I guess what I meant to say was this. Before you dismiss someone else's words as the ramblings of a lunatic, take a moment and think on it. Think about who the one living in a bubble truly is, because if you still think that life is all good, then you obviously haven't seen reality for what it is.
