Eli Levine's insight:

Even if these aren't the stakes that we're presently facing, these are the stakes that come with surviving in this universe, on this planet, in this plane of existence.

 

I don't know where we'll be in 100 years.  But what I do know, is that death and destruction is never off the table. 

 

That's just fact.  Take it for whatever you will.

 

Stupid chimps.

 

Think about it.

Eli Levine's insight:

The warning signs are all there.

 

No one of significance is paying attention to it, and the population of humanity remains bogged down in trivial issues.

 

It's funny that the conservative instinct to resist change and take everything for their own small self is the cause of most of the significant changes in our world for the worse.

 

Looks like we're going to have to develop plans for how to dig out of this crater that we're going to fall into.

 

Think about it.
