Myanmar: an excellent job handling their cyclone crisis?


Recommended Posts

Myanmar might have done an excellent job handling their cyclone crisis.

The survival of the fittest doctrine is interesting, and seems to have been proven throughout the history of human beings, and well, what better way to encourage this evolution in the 21st century than handling this disaster the way they have?

The survivors might be a strong population in the future. This might go beyond genetics. The survivors of this disaster will be forced into supreme survival mode.

The government has rejected aid from around the world. The government thinks they are preventing the influence of western nations on their population, but in fact, they are encouraging the survival that will create strength.

The survivors of this disaster, if they get educated, should be great contributors to the world.

This kind of hardship breeds human excellence.

What do you think?

I would tend to think the smarter people somehow were able to be out of harm's way in the first place. Of course that's just a hunch. :rolleyes:

I know I wouldn't be in that lowland, whether I was privy to satellite weather alerts or not.

The smarter ones may have had some type of access to the weather report and fled the floodplain.

Like you'd have the choice if you lived in Burma.

I don't call it survival of the fittest personally I call it murder in some ways that the ruling generals have denied the aid that would help those left to survive.

Couldn't agree more. Gangsters in uniforms

You're obsessed with supposition. Have any case studies for comparison?

...kind of like all of the "excellence" we are breeding in iraq...now it all makes sense

Unfortunately for you, Iraq isn't a disaster, and we probably won't see the sort of things that were mentioned in this thread.

I think you need to wean yourself off all those medications. I'm sure it is easy to ignore the world when you're living a tranquilized existence.

Hey buddy, I'm here to have some casual discussion. I'm not here to write research papers. B)

I think that it should be well understood that the harshness of the world creates stronger people.

Survival of the fittest! It's real.

Survival of the fittest has been the first rule in evolution, but these people will mostly fall to diseases and dispair, the wallop they just took. They should be provided with enough to recover some degree of strength, and the tools for rebuilding their shelter and livelihoods. I don't necessarily agree with an endless food supply, nor do they need flatscreen TVs. That's for us in civilized countries to aid in our de-evolution. Are we not men? We are DEVO.

Yes, I saw lots of those uncivilised dead Burmese children floating in the water. Oh if only they had been stronger they would have survived the winds and flood. I wonder what those dead people in New Orleans would have thought about the theory of the survival of the fittest just before they drowned. :blink: And that in a civilised country too.
