What is the greatest threat to Humanity?!

Question from the Internet:

“What is the largest threat to humanity?”

We ourselves are the greatest threat to humanity.

“Humanity” — especially from Nature’s point of view — is a single, fully, mutually integrated, mutually cooperating living entity. Individually we are all cancer cells that exist, behave, act only for themselves, exploiting, consuming everything with an insatiable desire while surviving and succeeding at each other’s expense.

When we harm others, we consume ourselves, when we take anything from others beyond our needs, we consume ourselves.

When we all understand, moreover when we all “viscerally feel this”, then we will stop causing harm to humanity, and then our seemingly inevitable march to self-destruction will stop.

And then we will start developing, building a truly Human, collective existence as individual cells of the same living organism.
