they've always been barbaric just the Internet makes it more known, today in the news 2 babies killed, one by its father thrown into a river while in its moses basket because he had an argument with the babies mum and another no idea the circumstances yet...Another story yesterday of an alleged sex assault which result in a mob having a dog tear at the suspects genitals it's like something out an ancient world textbook there's no deterrent so people are reverting back to the old days of brutality, if they could they'd be hanging, drawn and quarting people and burning people at the stake, by the looks of it those days will be coming round again
We endlessly create social norms. That's how we evolve into a better future. Child labor was normal, then Lewis Hine made extraordinary photographs that challenged that notion of this at the time of normal child labor situations.Google those images, you can feel the impact in those black and white images. How they focus on the kids working and how they blur the background. Showing different kids but the foreground and background being identical in angle and lighting. You feel the work around them being endlessly there and the child endlessly replaced looking for more work. We feel that impact and make changes to address that issue.These norms are created for a better future and then replaced for another better future. That is history that is progress and just growing into a better future.
I absolutely disagree with the notion that the future is always better than the past.
there's my past notion of children labor I've already argued for. You could make a case for vaccines all the way to robotics of the future. The future is always coming. It's not going to stop. It is challenging but we need to tackle those challenges head on and not hold back. As much as jesus was tackling the roman masters being a Jewish slave. The right path is not holding on to the past but fighting the powers at be in a righteous way.
No you misunderstand. Thinking that the future will always be better than the past is a modernist fallacy.
It's not the fact that the future will give us the answer but the believes we will find the best answer. Again like child labor it took a brilliant artist with a black and white camera to tackle child labor. The next issues are going to take just as talented experts to challenge the concervitotives of the future. Its an endless contest with concervitotives being the biggest losers. If that wasn't the case we wouldn't even have fire. kgo. to
You've seen me, you understand me. You know I'm not a dumb fuck. This exact line of thinking is why I'm not a dumb fucking left learning person.This is the area i thrive. Fighting the norms and the status quo. I will fight any norms for a chance at a better future. That's how we achieved every step in history. I will not be satisfied till we go further fighting even stronger powers.
No you still misunderstand, time is not linear, history can repeat itself. If you attack norms put in place to deal with former problems, these problems will sooner or later return, you are now in an endless cycle of trying to improve things that were never broken.
If abortion doesn't class us as barbaric nothing else does.
I think we're the least barbaric we have ever been, that doesn't mean society doesn't have issues but barbaric is hardly the word.
I think our technology enables us to avoid each other now. So we don't connect unless it's to compete for something in life.
Yes, some people seem to.
