Is the world closer to self destruction today than any other time in history?
We have the ability to actually destroy the planet for the first time ever in the history of the world, this joined with the fact that there really are people that consider themselves sane in this world that believe that since their god is coming soon, that we don’t have to fix the problems of this world that we just wait for him to come back and wisk them away. I don’t mean that as an attack on god or religion, but it sickens me to think that people actually feel the creator of the universe thinks in this way.
The world was never really close to self destruction during the cold war as many millions would have survived to start over. But if the nuclear war, which seems to be becoming inevitable, is added to our rape of the planet in the form of global warming there is not much hope/ And of all the govt.s on earth, it appears that largest polluter,by far,the U.S. is nor acknowledging. They are hiding their head in the sand and keep setting up commissions and committees and research boards to investigate while the world scientific community is showing proof. We don’t know when the point of no return will be reached. That is the problem. Perhaps we are very close.
