I'm going to try to add some clarity into the insanity that's running around loose on this planet by asking you to do one simple thing:
Go out into your yard and find one grain of soil. Just one. Put it on the tip of your finger and look at it closely for a moment. Now, look at the rest of your yard, imagining that the countless other grains of soil in the yard represent the countless planets and bodies in our known Galaxy and the grain of soil on your fingertip is the Earth. Are you getting my point?
Our planet is but a speck in our Galaxy. It is no more important or insignificant than any other body out there, yet we humans have deluded ourselves into believing that the Earth is just about the most important thing in space.
Now factor in that there are some 5 million nutcases on this planet who have deluded themselves into believing that they either want to blow it up or rule it with an iron fist. Can you see the pathetic irony that's at work?
If those some 5 million nutcases are so Hell-bent as to be delusional enough to believe that their wanting to control this speck of a planet is going to have any bearing on the rest of the countless billions of planets in our Galaxy, then let's all chip in $1.00 each, round them up and blast their collective asses to another 'rock' that they can rule over or destroy until there's nothing left.
Until that happens, I strongly urge each of you to get your priorities straight and STOP PLAYING THEIR INSANE GAMES. THEY are completely nuts and do not deserve even a moment of anyones time. Leave them alone, literally ignore them, do not buy into their petty fear-mongering.
'Control' over this speck of a planet is actually 'stewardship' and everyone is a steward. For those who don't respect and acknowledge that, they are not worth your acknowledgement of even existing.
Leave the nutcases alone - the rest of us will protect our little speck of a planet in the vastness of space. Besides, it's all we have.
