The Target Audience

This is blog is for anyone interested in how we make the world a better place. The Earth is our home and every human being should be united in working towards the common good for humanity. Each and every one of us has the ability to make a massive difference to the future of our species and our planet. Anyone that thinks they are too small to make a difference has never slept in a room with a mosquito.

It takes courage and perseverance to bring about change for the better. Anyone with an interest in Science Fiction where we dream of a better world tomorrow will find this blog of interest. When looking at how to solve global problems we have to look at the root causes of the problems, rather than the symptoms. One of the greatest solutions to a root cause was the eradication of Smallpox. Smallpox killed more people in the 20th Century than all the wars of the 20th century combined. That includes World War 1 and 2. Eradicating a disease so that no human ever gets it again is a great way to boost global health and the economy. It has added effects such as the benefit of education is greatly improved as people don't die from the disease meaning they have a greater chance to contribute to society.

The world is highly interconnected. What happens in one area of the Earth can have massive reproductions across the planet. Humans need to stop competing with each other and start cooperating to solve these problems. Currently, we as a species face problems from climate change, lacking basic education, we don't have as many scientists and engineers as we need, lack of critical thinking, antibiotic resistance.

As Carl Sagan famously said in one of his last interviews: "We've arranged a society based on science and technology, in which nobody understands anything about science technology. And this combustible mixture of ignorance and power, sooner or later, is going to blow up in our faces. Who is running the science and technology in a democracy if the people don't know anything about it? Science is more than a body of knowledge, it's a way of thinking. A way of sceptically interrogating the universe with a fine understanding of human fallibility. If we are not able to ask sceptical questions, to interrogate those who tell us that something is true, to be sceptical of those in authority, then we're up for grabs for the next charlatan, political or religious, who comes ambling along."
