Slowly but surely we went from progressing well, valuing intelligence and gaining full human rights. Now we are backtracking on all of it, and at best, it'll take decades to undo the damage, much less progress. And I don't wager humans will survive that long.
What do you think was the cause for it all
Arrogance and religious zealotry.
really? whats wrong with religious zealotry? and how are we arrogant?
You're joking, right?
I am asking your opinion on it? I am not saying I don't know what the words mean. I just want you to tell me how we are that in your own words?
Religious zealots have for centuries stymied cultural progression, enacted atrocities and have subjugated those not under its thumb already. It is by nature opposed to free agency of the self. The way we peacock on the world stage. We act as if we are the best country on earth, we lie about it constantly. We have some of the lowest literacy rates among developed nations, one of the highest maternal mortality rates among developed nations, we have one of the least amounts rights and what little ones we have are routinely eroded or removed, we have less freedoms than majority of other developed nations etc. That is by and large due to a demonization of knowledge, a pandering to casuistry and the earlier religious zealotry.

move on as we are more able to stop such thins from happening as often as they occur.
I think human nature is such that greed and lust for power will always be a part of humans. We will always need to protect our freedoms with a military presence and there will always be a criminal element that requires law enforcement. If you give every US citizen one million dollars today, in less than a year, over 50% of them will have spent all their money. There will always be some people who are better at earning and accumulating money and the appeal to class envy will alway be a part of politics.
Just my opinion but we have a few thousands years of history in which that has not changed at all.
what do you mean?
I believe climate change and climate migration will be too great for America as a country or most other countries to handle. I don’t want to just doom dump but look up Wet Bulb Temperature. Around the equator it will soon become too hot and humid for human bodies to survive because the air will be so thick, sweat won’t be able to distribute heat. So like 2 billion people will be displaced over time by that. Then the coastlines are going to be encroached by the oceans displacing a huge amount of people. We can’t mitigate climate change in time, we’re too tribal to see eachother as HUMAN BEINGS, so for those reasons, I believe we’re pretty fucked
Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton opened the floodgates by deregulating on a massive scale and allowing corporations to buy the government wholesale.None of our institutions are trustworthy, they are only more trustworthy than anarchy.
To be clear, I think every nation is destined to die and every single one of them has serious issues that will lead to their downfall.
I think humans in general just get better over time. I don't think America will be any different.
Really, yet we constantly do the same things over and over
Yeah, we do. But over time that changes.
Not really, it just appears that we do but history says otherwise
I mean, in some aspects I agree. But you have to admit, there's much more acceptance, less killing, a greater average quality of life.While there's plenty to criticize humanity for, I do think things have been getting better overall.
