Whenever humankind faces existential problems
They have two possible opposing reactions:
Escape the present, and start somewhere else;
Or alter your priorities to advance survival of humanity.
Historically, when Europe wanted to get rid of criminals,
They placed them on a boat to the then ‘savagery’
Of North America, where indigenous people
Roamed freely, thriving without the need
That are imposed by the ‘guests’ who shot
And killed indiscriminately to take over the lands.
From this grew capitalist society that takes
Advantage of its population to grow in powers.
Today, there are no undiscovered territories or unexploited ones.
So … What recourse does humanity have for its survivals?
All that’s left is space, Mars, our closest Neighbor
Is millions of miles away with an uninhabitable atmosphere.
Technology is advancing at such an exponential rate
That a mission to Mars is a proven possibility.
Man’s an ostrich!!!!
He hides from his problems rather than face them!
Instead of spending billions on fixing earth,
He spends hundreds of billions on space travels.
How can we progress if we can’t solve our obstacles?
Civilizations will die down because of this,
And people’s acceptance of change is in paralysis.
