As the World burns and the bodies pile up, it is important to recognize the futility of specific policies, wars, religions and the rest. As one covers avoiding the reality of homo-sapiens, efficient killers of any clans they don’t immediately recognize, it is time for a reality check. As they spread away from the African Savannah, it was clear that the shape of face and body were detrimental, but not the color of skin, religion, education and country club memberships. But now, it is not so clear.
As the 8 billion mix and match, most in the field and the rest in penthouses catering to politicians and billionaires, the objective is more definable. As the powerful ride the rest, the wealthy pretend to be smart, and the rest doubt themselves, initial conditions differentiate the one with enough to eat from those who do not. As half the world’s population go to sleep on empty stomachs and the rest throw up eating too much, one has to see the irony of humans.
We have just one World, but we live in different ones (1)
