One thing that is exposed ruthlessly on such occasions is modern humans’ lack of ability to survive during extreme circumstances. Several local and international newspapers asked the question how «rational man» would die in droves, while primitive tribes hardly had any casualties at all. One particular tribe, very close to the epicenter didn’t have any deaths at all during the tsunami, a few during the earthquake. They just buried their food, ran for the hills, and after the wave had hit quite simply returned and dug up their food. They knew survival. It has been instilled in them from early age. Civilized man hasn’t just lost something, but a lot. This is just one of the more distinct results of humanity attempting to leave nature. We all know that’s impossible (good), but we keep making the attempt anyway.
Another horrific display in the wake of the «disaster» is the works of the overgrown tribe that is the current national and global «community», and all its «leaders» (janitors) attempting to set themselves up as chief mourners, wanting us all to care for people we have never met, and have no emotional connection to. As with any modern major «accident», this is merely another way of controlling a disparate population, of course. Sorrow is a powerful tool of control. They want us to unite against the «enemy» (nature). Don’t fall for it.
In closing: Civilization is coming apart at the seams, and that fact is a very good thing. The very concept of civilization was a mistake from the start, and it has grown bigger as civilization, in ever more invasive ways is destroying life on Earth, making humans less human, making life... less life, lessening it in every way, threatening to destroy everything.
