My episodes of horror at the recent festivities have subsided. I'm now looking at this with the tools I have. Namely Science, and Art. From that view this is just the latest emotional convulsion between Light, and Dark that every society cyclically goes through.
Sometimes for good reason.
This is yet another tremor in our innate rebellion against rationality, that is civilization. As you know the bones in our feet are still now adjusting to our walking upright. So too our consciousness continues to rewire itself for self awareness.
What we think of as the disasters of history are actually the species remaking itself into something better or at least more interesting. Of course there's going to be a certain amount of breakage.
Which is to say wars genocides bad TV, and the general despoiling of the planet. It's important to be aware that this is a long term, and rather messy project that had us once banging rocks together to now sending probes to beyond this system.
Thing is we're just folks. The whole joyful nutty swell sweaty lot of us. Think of it. All of us are bright burning systems of Evolution.
I could say a bunch more, but it would just be static. This will do for now.
