Blimey. I think Steve's mischievous inner imp has got hold of his keyboard.
I feel compassion for other people's suffering, but as there is just the one of me and millions of people who are suffering there isn't a huge amount I can do about it. To treat it as some kind of learning or growth opportunity seems at the very least in questionable taste.
But it is hardly a cause for despair or self flagellation either.
For a start, things are getting better not worse. There are fewer people starving than there used to be. Armed conflict is decreasing. Newer weapons aren't necessarily worse than older ones. In fact personally a dagger frightens me more than a Stealth bomber.
As to disease, we have managed to eliminate several diseases already. When I was born small pox was still killing millions. Not one case has been reported since the seventies.
Things might not be perfect but humans are problem solvers and the problems are steadily being solved. I enjoyed the post as an original and thought provoking bit of writing, but I don't think I want to love bombs.
