What will bring about the end of days? What will be the final mistake that either ends all of humanity, or leaves it in rubble? Those were the questions I asked myself while conjuring up this list, and here is what I think are the 5 most things most threatening to life as we know it.
1. Oppressive and war driven Government.
The number one killer of man in the world is government, and has been for a long time. Governments like that of the United States who has caused endless wars, false flag attacks on its own people and has been rolling over a complete police state that has been, by far, the most dangerous thing mankind faces.
2. GMO and Chemical additives.
Genetically modified plants and meats, such as Monsanto corn and ‘pink sludge’ meat cured in a petri dish, have been proven to cause tumors in rats very rapidly, yet in the United States they aren’t even labeled as such when purchased. We have limited understanding of how GMO’s effect the body which isn’t good. GMO plants also cause insects to become resistant and evolve overtime making it even harder in the future to grow natural food.
3. Weather Modification.
The United States and other powerful countries have all done their share in attempting to control the weather through means of spraying chemicals with planes, and some believe through high powered radio frequency (HAARP). The weather is an important part of the planets equilibrium that we risk permanently damaging or destroying.
4. Crony Capitalism.
Super corporations have gained such size and power, and they are constantly working around laws and manipulating politicians for their agenda. As we allow these companies like GE, Comcast, Wal mart, Mcdonalds and others take over more and more aspects of our lives without proper regulations written by someone other than themselves, or any competition: we give up an equal amount of choice, jobs, and individuality. Companies growing are good, but it needs to be more than just a handful.
5. Lack of space exploration.
If there’s one thing we can agree upon, it’s that this planet will not sustain life forever, and sitting here talking about it isn’t going to change that. We have made very little progress in space exploration and defense since the 1970’s. The budget of NASA gets smaller and smaller by the year. What will we do when we run out of resources or an asteroid is headed for Earth? Historically, the advancement of humanity has had a large basis in exploration and colonizing new land. Well, all the land has been found and It’s time to move on!
