Question is why are so many, as we evolve, so willing to do this evil, with these things. Could it be the further decline in family values, traditional family, decline in religious beliefs and envolvment, lack of parenting, a society of not taking responsibilty for ones actions.
Maybe those should not be so convienient to use or get.
Maybe we should live in caves, worship the sun, and throw rocks at our enemies.
Probably where we may be heading if this world doesn't get its act togather, and that may depend if anyone survives our actions at all. It may not even be a situation of the evil uses of science, or war, we just all watched how the earthquake in Japan affected us. It is not always evil acts, its not allowing for the "what if". Global warming, polutions, depleating natural resourses, are not always act of evil, but arguments for going forward with no regard to results might be.
What I was referring to is there is a coorelation between family value decline and gang problems in our inner cities is pretty obvious. There is a coorelation between broken homes, dead beat Fathers, and kids ending up in gangs, where they use science inventions called guns for crimes. Still doesn't explain why so many are willing to kill someone over something as stupid as gang colors or tagging. They have mastered uneducated ignorace, while everyone of them has mastered video games and cell phone apps. No doubt a lack of parenting, and probably many other things non-existant that normal families do all play a part.
Why one kid uses his computer to make it through Harvard, and another to hack or pass viruses, is their the same coorelation? It seems to me as the old fashioned family values further erodes (not just religion), the negative uses grows. In either case, a gang kid with the gun or computer kid cyberbulling to death, what ingredient tells thier minds to go forward with these acts. Why is this mindset of not caring, no responsibilty for actions, total lack of concern, no remorse. Not only is it easy and convienient, its fun, its instant gratification to pull that or tp press that send button.
Seems to be no remorse, or sense of right and wrong from our leaders and Corparate world at the top, and the same lack of remorse trickles down to everyone else in society, defeated into thinking they are now entitled. Nobody else cares, why should I attitude. We entertain ourselves with TV and Movies, that glorify these things, and have a video game empire, that seems to teach violence of OK.
