I read the short the Hungry Earth of Mothership: Tales from Afrofuturism and Beyond. This set me thinking about the food chain of earth. Human beings currently have no natural enemy. With few limitations, we are able to grow crops, hunt for birds, chickens, horses and make them into food, then waste a lot of those in great amount. This is not in a balanced condition, and once it’s broken, we can’t anticipate what might be the result, just as described in the story. Human’s last carnival.
There is one series in Black Mirror where bees go extinction and human beings have to nurture artificial bees to work for people, pollination and so on, while they later become the tools of certain groups to kill people. We took resources from animals, space, food, and changed their living environment. What we don’t realize that we are all on earth, and we are changing ourselves as well.
