I’ve been wondering how great humanity has evolved to invent all sorts of wonderful gadgets and automated machines. We traveled to outer space and scoured the oceans, and made life so modern that many people live the science fiction dreams of long ago. I am astounded of our leap forward toward a global community, communicating in real time and exchanging ideas as if we are face to face talking.
However, even the positive results of our march to modernity left important issues lagging behind. One of the most debilitating problem to us on hand is disease prevention. There’s always a chance, how remote it might be, that a virus could suddenly emerge from nowhere to wipe out a chuck of the world’s population. This is no way an alarmist thought but a more realistic reading of what has been happening in some parts of our planet.
The free-flow of people becomes the most effective way for transmission of any disease. Take the Middle-East Respiratory Syndrome virus for example. It mimics the symptoms of the flu and if it is unchecked it could easily infect others who comes in contact with the carrier.
If we could only re-focused our efforts to the medical fields instead of thinking ways to annihilate ourselves with precision-guided armaments, then we could successfully limit the evolution of newer and deadlier diseases. I believe this a nobler objective than killing so-called terrestrial enemies.
