The last man to have walked on the moon died recently. No one has been back to visit that alien world in the forty-four years since Eugene Cernan stepped onto its surface. Such a shame.
As a species, we are regressing. With the amount of resources misused by Bush and Blair on illegal wars, or the ordnance that Obama has dropped in the last eight years, or the money squandered by European countries on foreign aid, and funding the overthrow of legitimate governments, we could’ve been colonising Mars by now. Instead we’re rolling in the mud, fighting over scraps and who gets to be the boss of the little pond.
As a species we once reached for the stars, but now we grasp for the money pot, and the temporary power that comes with it.
I pity the human race! Bring on the zombie apocalypse…
