Lamest moral lesson in the history of moral lessons
1 June 2016 | by lesphelpsSee all my reviews

I believe this is perhaps the lamest attempt at a moral lesson that I have ever witnessed.

Granted, Dr. Holden's plan to alleviate the worlds catastrophic overpopulation problem with a small pox epidemic was something that needed to be stopped.

Her assessment of the need for drastic action to avoid the results of population catastrophe, was, however, spot on.

Once caught, when she was trying to explain her motives, Danny pops back with a pithy, "I don't do math." This followed Dr. Holden's revelation that the Earth's population had increased by 1 BILLION people in 12 years. Way to tell her Danny!

Sam countered, "Did you think that one of the small pox victims might be the person who was going to solve our problem?" with a smug look on his face. How many times have we heard that nonsense?

How many decades have some of the best minds on the planet been working on solutions to overpopulation, with zero success?

As I said, an incredibly lame moral lesson, closed an otherwise tolerable episode.
