Whether a catastrophe is born of the natural-world or is made by human failing remains a bit difficult to determine these days, and it seems to depend on whom you ask. If a volcano erupts, it’s pretty clear which is to blame, and I’m glad that 2020 has spared us this at least. But I wonder when we will spare ourselves.
For tonight’s prompt, consider the ways in which self-defeating behavior causes catastrophe. Try brainstorming a brief list of the ways (there will be many), and then choose and write.
