I understand that 40% of the world's population doesn't have a sanitary toilet. Perhaps Big Brain could focus on that problem? Why doesn't the Academics make their own list? And, I don't know, put it on the Internet? Don't they frequent the same conferences and buy the same books?

They built a stupid system that is not secure, not resilient, and includes all the bad things in human behavior including bullying and aggression. What did they expect? Yet, somehow we survived.
