I am noticing a sort of apprehension towards the future. Everyone seems to have a negative vision of the future. Talking to people, it seems inevitable that some sort of catastrophe is gonna occur soon and drastically change society as we know it. Not one person I’ve spoken to had a positive outlook on the future(humanity’s, not their individual futures).
Now, I am a lazy nigga. If there’s a war or something, I’ll probably die quickly. So it’s in my best interests for shit to not go down. While it seems inevitable that something is gonna have to change, what with the ecological issues, the finite resources(how many years of petrol do we have left?), the development of even more lethal armaments and all the wars going on, what extent of change do you expect to see in the next 50 years? A complete makeover of the world structure, or slight changes?
My hope is that we might lose a bit of comfort(like only having 3 cereals to choose from), but nothing major will happen.
I wouldn’t mind the economic system getting a makeover though.
