Small bacteria and viruses hitting individuals reach large populations triggering changes. Large ideologies covering all humans and some animals trigger changes in families or singles. A little engine of history that could ride both ways?
Two latest world wars started locally and ended globally. A Serbian terrorist killed a single prince in 1914 and far away states killed millions in revenge. A German and a Russian terrorist signed a local secret pact in 1939 and started killing Poles, then everbody else, everywhere. Germans try to repent, Russians don’t.
Our century promises a change. Universal ideologies come first, singles and families must wait. When a corvid virus swept the planet in 2020, some governments made human sacrifices. Politicians prayed to the virus, please kill some and leave the rest alone. Virus was not amused.
