It started. Small. Insignificant. Completely irrelevant to my world. As long as it was out of reach, I would be fine. My world would not shatter.
Then it spread. Quick. Faster than anyone expected. From China to Asia, Asia to Europe, Europe to Africa and the Middle East. Then in New York, and finally at my doorstep.
It completely enveloped us. Each continent had been touched and conquered. Like a child who was scared of trying a new dish and then realizing it was the most delicious thing they ever tasted, we had been devoured. I bet Hitler’s jealous.
Of course, we were not worried. We all continued about our day like nothing was wrong. Like as if there was not something lurking. And soon it crept into our lives and destroyed us.
We had our first death. Then, our first hundred dead. Then, our first thousand. Mayhem ensued.
I knew the people here were stupid, but this event really showed how low our nationwide IQ is. People microwaved their dollar bills. Y’know, to “burn off” the bacteria.
I was scared. Of course I feared the virus, but this event has made me acutely aware of human behavior.
In all honesty I am more scared of humans than of the virus. If you think about it, then you will, too.
How did it start? A human decided to mess with nature without taking the necessary sanitary procedures.
How did it spread? Multiple humans caught it and traveled to other countries.
Why is it still here? Because *many* humans are either too dense, delusional, stubborn, or downright insane when it comes to the virus, when it comes to many things actually.
Those first two convictions I don’t put too much blame on. We were fine without the precautions and who would’ve known that all of this would happen to us?
But that last one is what makes me want to off all of humanity.
It is unbelievable how many people care more about wiping their asses than having their family die.
It is also funny in a way. This virus plagues us, but we plague the Earth. We are here for improvement, but look at what we have done. We have annihilated entire species, negatively shape-shifted our planet to the point of finding ways to run to Mars, and we have even backstabbed each other for the sake of superiority and success.
Homo sapiens. That is us. That is what we have labeled ourselves. Biologically speaking we are intelligent, but the name completely ignores our morality and behavior.
Our planet is fighting fire with fire, or in this case, a virus with a virus.
We are a virus, not just to the planet but to ourselves as well.
We would not be here if we were intelligent. We would not be here if we were civil. We would not be here if we had compassion and the smallest ounce of common sense.
So I leave you, the individual, with this question:
Who is the Enemy?
Are you sure?
