‘ I suspect that SARS-CoV-2 is yet another example of our “mastery” blowing back at us.’
Aha Clark, in that very sentance you demonstrate perfectly the point you seem to be making! You make the distinctly human assumption it is US who have caused the problem, and that it is US who must find the solution. Might the virus not just be ‘natures’ way of controlling the human population? As far as nature is concerned the more folk that get wiped out the better surely? Just like every other plant or animal, a successful species will eventually succumb to some limiting device of nature that restores balance.
