  1. SoundEagle would like to commend you on tackling some of the long-standing issues as discussed in your post. It would be very difficult if not impossible to address violence when the means to create violence are so freely available, given that the trading of weapons (which is still the largest, surpassing other trades and businesses according to experts’ estimates) continues around the world.

    Similarly, it would be very difficult if not impossible to address obesity and many lifestyle diseases when the means to acquire unwholesome food are so freely available, given that the selling, marketing, advertising, distribution and internationalisation of junk food, fast food and (highly) processed food and drinks (which are still the largest, surpassing traditional and other healthful alternatives according to some experts’ estimates) continue around the world.

  2. There are a variety of ways of viewing the world at large depending of course on what point of view that you are imprinted with during childhood. The current ‘Globalist’ framework does not allow for people to have the right to ‘destroy themselves’ as interpreted by this idea of social cost. Well, it seems insurance companies currently rule the world and have convinced many that everyone should abide the corporate mentality of cost versus savings. This might work well in perpetual crisis of outer space but the true believers of natural selection will argue that humanity is naught but a bacterium that when it consumes everything will cease to be a hazard as it will totally collapse ala the example of Rapa Nui. Unfortunately, James Cameron’s. “Titanic” scenario seems more cogent.
