Why , as human beings, we spend billions of pounds on weapons to kill our fellow men but have to rely on charities to fight diseases and illnesses. Every day, there are adverts or demands to raise money for cancer research and other causes and yet, I have never seen one to raise money for developing new weapons. There seem to be plenty of funds for that in countries all over the world. I believe that the human race is destined to eradicate itself through its own foolishness and lack of understanding. Stephen Hawking once said that he gives us 500 years. He could very well be right.
