We all know by now about Isis and the likes of it, wanting to live middle age style, and demonstrating their corporal brutality worldwide. It is similar to the punishments we used to do back then, burning witches and the such. How ignorant we must have been to have no rights for women and other ethnicities ( Interesting how we enslaved them by extending credit money that led for their enslavement according to the Historian Niall Ferguson in his book "Civilization", now it takes other forms), to pollute the rivers to the extent that brought so many plagues and had so many people lose their lives to it. I'm sure that back then there were people that had their head straight on from our perspective today , I wonder how did the rest of the people take the more progressive opinions.
Truth is that a lot has changed, but also a lot has stayed the same, I would go the distance to say we live in Modern Middle Ages (MMA?). Whether knowingly or unknowingly we still pollute our common environment (see Chemtrails). We are still suffering from plagues of degenerative disease due to ignorance about our lifestyles and consumption, and these are only the things we have immediate control of.
We are living in a world were social media gives people the ability to unite, throw corrupt governments, and do all sort of things that require coordination between strangers. We have these tools as well as progressive knowledge of right and wrong, yet we still can't bring genocide to an end. We are still slaves to the banks and governments that own us. So busy chasing the bills that we don't come about. We don't educate ourselves about what really matters. We fall to the trap of consumerism and dumbing ourselves down. We allow ourselves to keep destroying the planet, ignoring all the signs, and taking no action.
As far as our population numbers it seems we are growing, so apparently we are doing better then ever. But I wonder about the people 200 years from now, when they think about us, what would they say, how obviously stupid we must have been. They will be correct sorry to say. The good thing is that we are probably on the right track, and hopefuly you too are moving in the right direction.
Be well and read my other blogs
