I mean that with all the technology, if something goes wrong, it goes very wrong.
The days of 'minor' this and that is over.
Well at least it did not destroy the nuclear plant and set off a hoard of radiation.
It shouldn't be like that Valerie - with technology we should have the means to be well prepared more than ever before, with all the resources, if we aren't, it means pure mismanagement and incompetence from the idiots who run in politics and supposed to protect the better interests of the country and the people who voted.........Technology is our ally, but the problem is people are idiots and do not have proper plans of execution.
One positive side of technology though, it allowed for fast tracking a vaccine - if mRNA really does work, it will be a major advance, it means future vaccines will happen a lot faster. Unfortunately the world is clearly not prepared for pandemics or disasters ! and some say that we are expected to have far worse than this pandemic and we will be ill prepared.
It's strange that people were more united during 9/11, this COVID19 crap has truly divided people and the people who do not care are the ones causing the spread to continue. COVID19 is the best example if incompetence, we had a first wave, so technically you'd think people are more prepared to deal with the fierce second wave, ESPECIALLY that they KNEW a second wave stronger than the first would happen. So why the hell are we in this situation then ???
It's a big mess.........as to earthquakes, that's another story, can they really be prevented like virus spreads, not really, it is an act of God, it is mother nature, but with technology you can know areas that are at higher risk of earth quakes..............disaster can strike at any time - it is amazing how we are ill prepared even for little things, it's even more CRAZY that we cannot control a pandemic with SIMPLE rules that would help stop the spread !
