Self-sufficiency

I believe self sufficiency is the greatest threat to humanity. Our thinking that we are the end-all/be-all–our own solution to life’s problems. While technological and scientific progress have catapulted us into new arenas with new tools (and created more challenges), human nature
has not evolved. As a species, we are still pulled toward pride, fear, and selfishness. Surely, some individuals rise above their own personal weaknesses; but it is a catastrophic misjudgment to believe our increased knowledge makes us our own solution … our own gods. Yikes.
