    This is honestly a good thing.

    Humanity is a species destined to be overall miserable. Most of the world is and will always be poor, and let's face it money = happiness. It's not the fault of a few bad apples, but the common man. People aren't good, but they're certainly not bad either. They're neutral...

    Man Will Not Be Allowed To Destroy The Earth Completely

    I'm not so sure whether it's the Earth we need

    to save or if it's humans. Because this massive overarching monoculture we've created...it needs to go down. We can either dismantle it voluntarily or be dragged down with it when it finally does come down. Because it will go down eventually; it simply isn't sustainable.

    There is nothing wrong with planet earth.

    Something that has been blasted with solar rays, gamma rays, asteroids, fire, floods, earth quakes, ice ages, etc isn't going to be destroyed by little parasites known as humans.
