I will start with a quote from an article published by Anders Sandberg, who works for the Future of Humanity Institute at the University of Oxford.
“Most work on bioweapons have been done by governments looking for something controllable, because wiping out humanity is not militarily useful. But there are always some people who might want to do things because they can. Others have higher purposes… Some people think the Earth would be better off without humans, and so on.”
John Robbins is the author of a well documented book, A Biological Apocalypse Averted. In his book he mentioned researches done for food industry, creating bacteria that control the plants growth.
“It is testimony to the amazing powers of science that researchers were able to track the mechanism by which the genetically engineered Klebsiella prevented plants from growing.”
I will not quote the whole saga around this research, but worth mentioning that some more research stopped the whole process of releasing this bacteria for commercial use.
The book mentions the opinion of geneticist David Suzuki: “The genetically engineered Klebsiella,” he says, “could have ended all plant life on this continent. The implications of this single case are nothing short of terrifying.”
There are many ways to express warnings or ideas. Some people think the whole society on Earth should be re-organized… differently. Interesting to mention the Georgian Guidestones, that is a granite monument erected in 1980 in the state of Georgia, United States. The first of the ten commandments carved in stone is: “Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.”
I mention the Georgian Guidestones in my book, The World Ends Tomorrow where I warn the reader about the danger of a biological apocalypse.
My book is SF / Fantasy, but the reader could easily relate with real life challenges and dangers. A dystopian society that lost control of its communities, and lacks the proper regulations for the research labs, will lead to nothing else but an apocalypse.
.... From my book, The World Ends Tomorrow:
“What will those do who had the innocent dream of a simple life? And what was left from this life did not look good. What can set those people free? Many committed suicide.
What will those do who preached the teaching of God, and now had to explain God’s ways? God’s ways are unknown to us, satisfied no one anymore. God is trying us was even worse. No one accepted such an explanation. Some people were still hoping God would come to rescue them and raised their hands to the sky asking God for help, but others killed them, offended by their stupidity.
What will the rich do with their wealth? Or the mighty with their power? All will be dust, soon.
Since the dawn of history the fight was between good and evil. But now, when history itself was about to come to an end, the fight was between good and good, and it did not matter what side you were, you would be crushed by the daemons of doubt. “
