Bright Or Gloomy Horizon? Essay

436 words - 2 pages

The world has always been filled with all kinds of threats and even though efforts have been made to reduce and prevent them, they cannot be completely eliminated. At present I see the future from global perspective to be quite gloomy. There are a number of significant threats raising their heads.

Biological weapons are prohibited in most of the world, because they are considered to be particularly cruel, causing unnecessary suffering and are uncontrolled weapons.

India, Pakistan and North Korea are under the terms of non-member countries and all of them are either having or suspected to have nuclear weapons. Movies placed in future, where large pandemics are ruling the world and numbers of people are dying leaving behind whole empty cities, maybe are not far from reality.
