What should be the goal of humanity?

Humanity has come a long way from what we were when we first started off. Before we were primitive hunter gatherers who would do their best to find a cave to call home and somehow survive.

But as time passed and we began to learn. We learned to build houses so we could live anywhere, we learned to use fire to cook our food and keep us warm, we learned to build weapons to fight and win, even if our opponent was stronger. We learned to make wheels so we could move better and faster, we learned and we learned and we learned. From all that learning, through time, perseverance and just plain stubbornness, we found ourselves where we are now; the big kahuna, the top dog, the Lord of the jungle!

We learned so much that we were able to better ourselves beyond comprehension, and then we gave ourselves the power to change the world.

The problem is that with all of our newfound power, we’ve begun to misuse it and are basically slowly destroying the Earth. Polluting the oceans, rapid deforestation, bringing entire species to extinction, almost endless wars where we destroy each other for quite frankly stupid reasons, global warming, melting polar icecaps, raising the sea levels, killing fish and coral, the list goes on.

Now all of this has come about because of our own advancements in technology and the like, so what does that mean? Do we need to stop using technology altogether and go back to the stone age if we want to save our planet? I honestly don’t think so. Human history is filled with instances of us trying to better ourselves and I think we should continue that trend, we just need to change the way we go about it.

In other words, we need to better ourselves such that we can take better care of the planet as well. Why?

Remember that we have actually come to a point in human existence where we can actually influence the working of a planet. At this point if we don’t try to better ourselves we’re just doing ourselves a disservice.

So what do you say? Let’s keep up the tradition and give it a twist. Let’s make humanity’s goal to better ourselves so that we can better the planet too.

That’s it for this post, I hope you like it and I hope you have a good day ahead.
