The world is a crazy place

We are living in interesting times. From a global perspective, crazy people are in seats of power and are putting the planet at risk of a nuclear disaster.

Between US President Trump and Kim Jong-un of North Korea, ISIS and the seemingly never-ending madness in Syria to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Turkey, the world is at the edge of a very dark place right now.

It is indeed a scary time.

On a more human level, mankind is at an even greater risk of extinction. Why? Well, it's basically the belief I have that as men and women, as a species, we are more confused than ever before.

More and more, we are seeing reports of women deciding to forego motherhood in the pursuit of professional careers.

In the past year alone, I have had conversations with women who said they have no interest in having children.

"Children are too expensive!", "I don't have the time!", "I just don't feel like I would make a good mother!" are just some of the reasons I have heard from women between the ages of say, 25 and 30-something.

Meantime, there is further confusion on their part because they also say that they want to be or are independent. However, at the same time, they are looking for a man to take care of them?

Question is: Can they be both?

On the other side, there are a lot of men who are being intimidated by the idea of women being more independent. They don't like their women too smart.

They don't like the idea of women who don't make them feel like they're important. What a prekkeh!

This is kind of like what you see in dances these days, where the men are on one side of the floor dancing among themselves and the women on the other side taking selfies of how good they look to post on social media platforms.

Each side is so busy focusing on themselves that they have completely forgotten how to coexist.

The frightening part is that this is only the beginning. It will only get worse, and what then?

The world is indeed a crazy place, and the way things are going if Trump and Rocket Man don't end the world as we know it, man and woman might very well find a way to end ourselves over time.

The scientists are right. Man is included in this extinction cycle and we might turn out to be our own worst enemies.
