What is the main cause of COVID-19?

“We are pushing nature to its limit. We are pushing population to its limit. We’re pushing communities to their limits. We’re stressing the environment. We are creating the conditions in which epidemics flourish. We’re forcing and pushing people to migrate away from their homes.”

Hello, Torsten.
I think that the main cause (I wanted to write the main course​:blush:) of COVID is hunger, explicitly, as a problem of feeding (it is dangerous to eat everything- :bat:) and hunger for new impressions without limits, interfering with unknown processes of nature

Hi Tatiana, I agree with you, one of the reasons why COVID-19 emerged is indeed hunger and the reason for hunger is not that a shortage of food and resources. It’s the fact that the planet’s resources and the globally generated wealth is distributed unfairly and unequally. Jason Hickel nails it on the head with his latest article.

Hi, Tatiana. There is something in your words about hunger. Must be thorn in my side . I remember it took quite an effort from my wife to stop me from trying fried grasshoppers. Amazingly she had nothing against snake and crocodile. :grin:

I don’t think so though I didn’t have a chance to compare. My wife said I would be forbidden to kiss her if I put any insect in my mouth :grin:

Oleg, I really wanted to ask your opinion. I am sorry that grasshoppers remain for you unfulfilled dream, as well as, for your wife snake and crocodile. There is the difference between cultural world of humans and wild world by resistance from temptations.

Thank you, Oleg, you really understand my English of beginner​:blush:. My mother replica is still problem for understanding: “if you want something very much and it is prohibited you can do it”. Right now I think it is criminal attitude (I am passionate of detective story), but she said it when I was limited on a complete diet caused by medical problems. So, is it ambiguous or conflict? Don’t know.:cherry_blossom:

Prohibited but strongly desired means permitted and done for the glory of God. I guess everyone practices this approach from time to time. Even Germans (hi, Torsten :wink:)
