Proof That Humans Are Stupid And Doomed.
Yes, I know that is not the most flattering title to a post but bear with me. I was sitting here considering the topic of logic and logical thinking and I have to come to realize human beings are arguably no longer the smartest creature living on this planet. Think about it, animals don’t harm themselves, demean themselves, argue over material things, base their opinion of other creatures on the color of their skin, they don’t lie, they don’t discriminate, and they don’t hate each other based on belief. Humans do all those things so when you look at it that way, who is smarter? Humans, because we can create technology and the such,or animals, who act in accordance with the natural ways of life? Here’s some amazingly stupid human facts…
Almost a billion people on the planet don’t have access to clean drinking water. Unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. All this while 70% of the Earths surface is covered in water.
Last year, the United States spent more dollars on national defense, 660 billion, than there are stars in the Milky Way galaxy, approximately 400 billion.
During World War I, civilians made up fewer than 5 percent of all casualties. Today, 75 percent or more of those killed or wounded in wars are non-combatants.
Every politician in the current presidential race has promised to fix the economy, foreign policy, the tax burden, the struggles of the middle class. The funny thing is that these are the exact same issues that have been facing the country in the last ten elections and, if that is the case, what the hell have our last ten presidents been doing? What problems have they solved?
The World Hunger organization estimates that close to one billion people are currently considered “undernourished” or “hungry”. That means that, as a race, we are unable to feed one seventh of the world population. This occurs at the same time that we, as a race, have a satellite passing out of the solar system (Voyager 1), as we are able to clone human beings, and as technology has reached levels only seen in science fiction movies. Yet we can’t feed one out of seven people.
The average worth of a congressman in this country is $913,000. The average worth of the average citizen is approximately $50,000. So as our leaders are paid more than ten times what the average person they represent makes, they continue to flounder about the same, unsolved problems that have plagued this country for 40 years.
We, in this country, embrace a style of government in which we elect leaders to represent us, yet once elected these same leaders have no restraints that force them to govern based on the will of the people, and they can overrule the very people who elected them regardless of the people’s opinion.
We, as a race, have invented nuclear bombs(that kill by the millions and cause constant tension between countries), abortion(which regardless of which side of the issue you are on, is an invention that does nothing but snuff out lives before they have a chance to start), chemical weapons(designed to horribly and painfully kill other human beings), but worse than all of that, we are the beings that created propaganda(designed to make millions of so-called intelligent human beings believe things that aren’t true as long as they are told it enough times)
Professional basketball players make 125 times what our teachers, police and firemen make in a give year, individually.
Our government, after preaching patriotism in support of our unjust wars, allowed the bodies of countless U.S. troops to be dumped in garbage landfills…..our sons and daughters…
The United States produces 89% of all online pornography videos. The pornography industry makes 13 billion dollars per year and pornographic websites are the fourth most viewed type of site online.
This final one is an opinion only and does not represent anyone’s views but my own. The lust for freedom has surpassed morality.It is more important that you have the right to do something than it is to question whether it is something you should do.
