    Overpopulation is a byproduct of a late stage civilisation and late stage civilisations deny the natural order so it's a correction of sorts.

    Evil in great doses can bring a tsunami of resilience and love but a lot of people have a hard time understanding this.

    Kurt, that is exactly what happened after 9/11 attacks in NY. for weeks everyone banded together with love to deal with the horrors of that day. We are still dealing with that to this day, only probably not as loving as the first weeks after the tragedy. Now people are questioning the long term care of the first responders who are developing cancer due to breathing in the foul air after the towers came down.

    I think unless you're actually experiencing it when it happens, some tend to be disconnected from it. The day after Hurricane Sandy left millions of NY'ers without homes, electricity or other essentials, with all the devastation around, the mayor at the time Mike Bloomberg wanted to have the NY Marathon still go on. There were booths being set up in the areas that were just devastated by the storm, with food and water for the marathon runners, meanwhile there were residences demolished, people only owning what was on their backs, their homes flooded out, kids had died... the marathon route ran thru these devastated areas. There was a lot of backlash because of it, and people who weren't from the area couldn't understand why the people who were just devastated asked for the marathon to be canceled. A friend of mine from California, on the other side of the states, couldn't understand why the marathon should be canceled or how rude it was to be putting up booths for food and drink when there were people literally in the streets still reeling from what mother nature did. In the end, Bloomberg did the right thing, but it was because he was shamed into doing it.

    Tsunamis are generally destructive for humankind but, thankfully, are transient - the opposite of what we need with resilience and love. ;)

    Emergency crews - first responders as they're now called - are always the ones highest at risk whether it's a major catastrophe or a local event. As with Chernobyl and Fukushima Daiichi those responding to emergencies often experience long-term sicknesses.

    Now in the UK our paramedics and fire-fighters face new hazards. They are coming under dramatically-increasing numbers of attacks from those they try to help. Many of those attacks come from booze and drugs addled wasters, the dregs of society. Our police have been facing such attacks for many years and they too are facing increased pressure at a time when budgets and officer numbers are being slashed. Knife crime and acid attacks have become the latest fashion but our police have nothing more than night staffs and Tasers to protect themselves against drug-warring gangs who also carry hand-guns.

    Sandy was devastating but have you forgotten Katrina? Neighborhoods there were devastated and many have not recovered. They may never recover.

    It may have seemed tactless to try to go ahead with the NY marathon but the reality is likely to have been that running it would have had little practical negative impact and may even have lifted folk's spirits a little.

    Before this conversation goes further we're approaching the realm of politics, proscribed by ALF rules. It's time, please, to return to the thread topic.

    thank you for your understanding :)

    True. I hate it when vocal minorities ruin everything.
