We are victims of the wild successes of our predecessors and we have inherited a world which we take for granted as if it were natural and normal and it is not. People used to have wars that would kill millions. We used to drink filthy water that the people upstream washed their clothes and shit into and die at 40 from smog filled cities. We used to die from now preventable diseases. This is not normal. We merely think it is. And it's been normal for so long now that people are getting lazy and fucking with the safeguards that keep them from dying miserable and entirely preventable deaths.
Pain is a teacher and we're in short supply of it.
