Since the current Woke System of the World does not work, catastrophes will continue. They are inevitable.
Mankind must be pummeled until it rejects wokeness. It will evidently take a lot of pummeling to bring healing.
It is true that mankind often took a fearsome pummeling in the pre-woke age. But there’s just one thing. Under Wokeness, mankind pummels itself with entirely avoidable floggings: crush your religion, shackle your police, persecute and / or hamstring your best people, deliberately destroy knowledge. Etc. Mankind will continue to inflict easily-avoided self-pummelings until the morality improves.
Wokeness is about morality, but morality proceeds from metaphysics. Metaphysics refers to one’s understanding of the basic nature of reality. Bad metaphysics, bad morality. Bad morality, many self-inflicted catastrophes.
That is why the floggings will continue until morality improves. Q.E.D.
