What this thread is NOT about:
-2012 or mayan calender
-fate or destiny
This isn’t a “save the world” thing considering that the world survived before us and will continue to exist after we are all dead. What this is more of is a question of your belief in whether humanity’s continued survival in relative comfort will exist in the future and to what degree is your participation?
We keep on hearing about wars, pollution, global warming (big one), financial blahs and just a whole bunch of other crazy shit that seems to doom and gloom onto us all. Each side seems to be projecting absolutes unless we change or face dire consequences which makes me wonder, how do you feel as a single person in a huge ass community about these projections (or opposing sides to the arguement?) Do you feel that hey, you are going to die, it’s not going to be a problem for you so why the fuck not live out my life at this present “height of civilization” for all it’s worth? It’s not saying that you should give the problem for future generations to deal with, but you are completely apathetic to the humanity’s future because it’s not a part of yours.
The other option is that you’re trying your darndest to recycle, keep aware of the problems and trying to contribute to the solution regardless of all the other people who aren’t participating. It’s not even a point that you hope to solve the problem yourself, but hoping that by example or perhaps by small steps you can help stave off the problems that might cause humanity to just go to shit.
Or are you just a person who isn’t really either the two options but is optimistic that hey…humanity will solve things out on it’s own. It’s not that we can’t solve everything but as with most things in life, compromise and the grey area will always exist more often than the absolutes. Sure global warming, or world peace may never exist, but some things work out at the expense of others that maintain the continued balance we have in the world. It might get strained, there might be some huge shakeups, but it’s never so drastic that it would end humanity but merely change ideas about it. Or do you have your own opinion, reasons and explanations on it all?
