Why Globalization brings Pandemic and Breakdown

I have not dared to propose this theory before but I would like to point out now that if we don't stop globalization we will have more COVID-19-like breakdown for sure.

Novel pathogens appear from time to time. It could be due to human activities or random natural events. Globalization entails people gathering into crowded spaces for economic development, and often these crowds share similar lifestyles including consumption pattern and production role. As a result, they are subjected to the same risk factors.

This is totally AGAINST the rule of biodiversity, and brings forth a fragile ecosystem -- this time round, the endangered species is called "Homo Sapiens".

We have read from textbooks how decreased biodiversity due to farming or hunting could bring mass extinction at the end. We were not told that this effect is limited to wild animals and plants, and we are never assured that human beings are not subjected to the same laws of nature.

A lot of people would instantly tell me that the original concept of biodiversity is not about stratification of the human society over regions. However, from a computational point of view, the "names" do not matter. What matters are the relationships and FUNCTIONS described by the model.

"Food chain" is a primitive model of the chain of economic activities. Both are chains of consumption and production, resulting in growth, reproduction of consumption units
and sometimes death.

If you have a large field of the same crop, when it gets sick, the whole field is often sick soon. Biodiversity offers the members protecion as a horde. Globalization makes many places highly dependent on a single economic activity, be it tourism, parts manufacturing or finance. When a place is down, the other parts of the world will also be down soon, just like breaking the food chain where the memebrs can only depend on few other memebers.

人類有很多不同的屬性,有一兩種偏離正常(就當是十分之一吧)是很平常的。假設人有5種互相沒有關係的屬性,五個數值都是「正常」的機會只有一半左右。
但是如果五個數值之中,同時有三種是「不正常」的,那麼100人之中,就只有不到一人,堪稱「異界人」了。
