Why can't humans solve the problems facing mankind?

@JLNobody,
Jimmy Hendrix was right.

Until the power of love
Overcomes the love of power
There will be no peace.

@anthony1312002,
The human race hasn't had a single year of global peace ever. I looked it up. War is our default mode. Same with crime and disease. When you have laws, you'll always then have crime as not everyone's on board with subjugating their will to a government's. And when you have lots of people forced to live in close proximity you'll get diseases as some built-in mechanism seeks to thin out the numbers and some disease springs into being.

We are primates and predators. We naturally seek both community-living, but as predators competition, usually against our own best interests as with wroking more collectively. This contrary nature is one of the things that makes humans different from other animals, even other primates. Where other species exist harmoniously in nature, with nature, our species destroys nature and poisons it. No other animal destroys its' own habitat. That's all our's. And while many other species have the equivilent of war, crime, and interspecies conflict and violence, humans remain the only one who've gone from being able to kill others with a club, to destroying the entire planet's biosphere.

@anthony1312002,
War, crime, and aggresion unfortunately define humanity. Don't think you can ever get rid of it. Even Roddenberry couldn't. Star Trek saw a united human race but we still made spaceships armed for use against non-humans. And disease too is simply part of organic life. Genes mutate and change and diseases come about as a result. Can cure and prevent them, but they'll always be a part of life.

Of more immediate concern is getting rid of the factionalizing of humanity with countries, states, etc. Until we're just one planet and one people, nothing else is going to work.

If the 1980s is text, on a screen, what is the analysis of pre-1980s: of course, this includes the dinosaur age, as well as the nineteenth century.

@anthony1312002,
Haha.
Yeah, you really do not get it.

What do you think would happen if you did away with disease? You probably have a simplistic idea like "Everyone would be healthy, duh." No, deeper than that. Barring accidents or murders nobody would die. You see, old age is a function of disease. Sound great? Sounds horrible. I'm a Christian but I'm also a Taoist. These things need to be a certain way or nature is out of balance. Think interminable suffering. Think actual overpopulation rather than just the supposed overpopulation. Think people getting bored and killing themselves.

Ending crime? How would you propose to do that? Execute everyone who committed a crime? No, you said with technology. So something "peaceful" like a personality chip that robs people of free will.
You see, between this and world peace, you are looking at extreme tyranny that strips people of even the will to revolt.

Have a look at the novel Matched. It gives you a pretty good idea of what society is like when people are not even free enough to know that they are oppressed.

You would be in a living hell, and not even able to die to end it. Nice idea, but no. Crime, war, disease, and death are bad things yes. But they are also good things.

@anthony1312002,
Every war is caused on purpose.

Since British v. France.

The Money Lenders ( whom many describe being Jewish ) caused most of it indirectly.

......................................................................

Beyond that every other problem is selfish.

If their was a law that state you could walk around naked in broad daylight trust me people would be outside walking around naked whenever they could and can. People would get into arguments and go to jail.

Beyond that when people do not respect the the "Trust system". Meaning you have problems when trust is involved.

It is like going to grade school, where we are trained to stand in line for lunch like prisoners in a jail AKA "Correctional facility". Grades K-12 is a creation of people and it not the correct way to educate or train children for the world.

Your either a bad-student who gets in trouble but a good child at home.

or

Your a good student in class but with your parents you are bad.

Most people

Would rather be a sub-serviant, slave, coward, at work, and give it their all.
While going to home to cause a domestic dispute and situation only to look like a moron to a police officer or less of a human in front of your spouse. Even get arrested. In most circumstances, they take out all their stress out on their children, and spouses to a point where they could get away with traumatizing somebody for life. Kiss the cock-ring at work while struggle getting any from their spouse.


Again

people are good at work and bad at home. In time a domestic dispute occurs.

while

people are bad at work are good at home. Then they get fired.

...........................................................................................................

Again you see the pattern.

You hire an office skirt for her skirt so she could burn your money and buy shoes. Rather then hiring a working man who will save up, raise a family, and invest in a business for the next generation.

You hire an insane person who belongs in an asylum rather then a sane person who spent most of their lives inside living inside as if their lives are an asylum.

You choose selfishness over selflessness.

You choose to be a coward and worship fear instead of saying to hell with being a coward and choosing to live free.

.................................................................................................................

Fear fear worship fear you might as well worship death.
Women actually are symbols of death via

Flowers
Earth
Yang
Darkness

..................................................................................................................


When a woman worships money it leads nowhere.

@raprap,
While I thumb you up on that short concise humorous answer I would go further and say that as a collective, a superorganism, we behave exactly in the same fractal pattern other so called "living things" do...thus what we do is what MUST happen...no different from viruses, and microbes!
