Will this time in history be recorded as the beginning of the end for humanity? It's not impossible! History tells us so.
Our acceptance of greed, aggression and violence is unprecedented. So many children aren't even aware of an alternative to the hatred they are immersed in from birth.
Step back for a minute and think about Union Carbide's refusal to reveal the ingredients of their poison to the Doctors because it was a "trade secret". Now imagine it was your children dying, I dare you to take a few more minutes to think about it. Take your time.
Scared sacred allows you to make up your own mind while you to stare the monster right in the face.
