I completely agree with you. A well designed, permanent Moon base is really what's needed. Many years from it's completion I can see it being self-sustaining and even launching people and goods back to Earth.

Human beings need to start expanding beyond our own Orbit. It's 2014 people, let's go.

The thing about AIDS is the fact that while it could have been controlled and extinguished a long time ago, it works on the Human desire to procreate. I know it's really hard to take and will upset people but if we did mass testing on the entire planet and placed all the infected people on a large Island inhabited only by them; AIDS would be a thing of the past for the rest of us. But things like silly morals get in the way of that.

What really bothers new is all the NEW Viruses just in the past 10-20 years. Nobody wants to say it but we all know it's because of overpopulation. Until we do something about that, you can expect more of the same. There just comes a time where you have to throw morals out the window in order to correct things.

It says "people are increasingly unwilling to be cut off from constant communication". In those cases I suggest putting those types of people in some sort of rehabilitation facility. If you are unable to stop using your Phone, then my friend, it's called an addiction and they can get very dangerous for you and especially others if you are unwilling to control yourself.

Most people will say they "need" a phone or a some other form of technology; no you don't. Water, Food and a place to live are needs and other things such as a Phone are wants. People greatly confuse Needs verses Wants these days.

There is simply too much reliance on Technology now. A World War or some sort of Space event is all that's needed to stop your Phone from working and the way you have entrenched this Tech into your life, your survivability without these devices in the event you are cut off for many months is low. The unfortunate part is that no one will do anything about this reliance until it's too late. Humans have a knack for waiting until it's too late.

My account is leaked also but I was one of the first to get a Gmail account and it's an extremely common word. People use mine as their Spam email and it's a big hassle. The password listed for mine is nowhere close to any of mine. So whoever is using my email are the ones in trouble.

There is no such thing as ISIS. It's Government/Mainstream Media nonsense created to keep you in fear. It's been quiet for awhile and they needed a new thing to keep you in check.

Turn off and tune out and you'll live a more stress-free life without living in fear and worry that the little brown skin people will come bomb you.
