Do we really want to survive?!

Question from the Internet:

“What will you do if the whole world will end in 30 minutes from now?”

Nothing. If the world ends in 30 minutes and you just got to know that, then you freeze like a rabbit in the headlights of an approaching car.

What would be the meaning of doing anything within 30 minutes, what would give you if you talked to someone, or did any action?!

On the other hand, we already know, that if we continue living as we do now if we continue blindly following our inherently selfish, cancer-like, exploitative and destructive nature, then our human world will end in flames within this or in the next generation, leaving only a handful people alive, perhaps.

So the question is if we are doing anything about this right here, right now?! Do we want to survive?! Do we want to survive even if it requires fundamental, unprecedented self-changes, completely reorganizing, rebuilding how we have been living for millennia?!

Would survival be worthwhile even if we had to live for the sake of others and the whole system, selflessly, unconditionally making efforts for the wellbeing and optimal development of the whole Natural system instead of blindly, stubbornly living only for ourselves until we consume and destroy everything this way?!

These are very real, pressing questions for our and for the next generation as our life literally depends on finding the answers!
