    Why we're heading for a major global catastrophe, that is, unless we change our ways.

    We’re all forgetting why we’re in this mess in the first place. Amidst the worst refugee crisis since World War 2 and the deplorable humanitarian disaster we’re witnessing, some still feel as though housing refugees in Europe will solve the problem. It won't. It may ease it for some time but for how long will we continue fighting wars and killing our own, displacing them from their homes and adopting stringent, harsh policies?

    Europe should take the burden of the refugees, it’s our moral, human and lawful duty. More so we should take it since it was our very nations in the West who created this convoluted situation in the Middle East. Now that Europe is experiencing a backlash for its actions, how it reacts may change the destinies of nations and the course of history forever. Those who accept the refugees will no doubt prosper and be favourably looked upon by coming generations, however those who shirk their responsibility and even at this critical juncture turn a cruel and uncompassionate head, will live to regret the day they showed such cold-hearted response towards their fellow beings.

    The earth is the common heritage of all people. Our humanity transcends all barriers of race, culture, nationality, religion or anything else. The entire world should be waking up ready to accept the refugees coming from conflicts which we, the West partly created. How soon do we forget the lessons of World Wars. Not even a century has passed since WW2 that we seem to be on the brink of another global conflict. Do people not learn? Is human life not sacred enough? Are the resources in our own countries not sufficient? Is there not enough provision in the world to sustain all human life? Yet from the beginning of man, to these current days of the world, we seem to forget our common humanity and allow base urges to dominate our actions.

    I don't see the link between the current refugee crisis and WWIII.
