What I was getting at was that that is a situation we are already in and
in the end must find ways to deal with that do
not require mass murder to relieve. Human nature however founded has
some nasty features that have to be worked around
or every so often a nut case will come along and wipe out a big whack of
us or our physical achievements with the WMD of the day.
No one wants the "soma" method. Sex , drugs and rock and roll worked
for some in the the 60's...ha ha. Maybe sports and gaming and other
highly competitive pastimes are a good way out.
Extreme Connectivity makes more chance to work aggression/psycho-social
incompatilities out one on one regularly over time rather than with a
single destructive bang.
This is going to be a toughie to solve. It has survived since the
earliest beginnings of our species.
