Mod here: this topic is generating a lot of passionate discussion. **We’d like to remind people to keep it civil in Futurology. Remember that it’s okay to attack the idea, but NOT the person.** Vigorous debates are great, but back-and-forth flamewars don’t add anything of value. Remember that if you disagree strongly with someone: * Unexpectedly polite responses can change minds and lead to new realizations, where a personal attack only hardens viewpoints * Personal attacks can earn comment removals or bans. If you respond to personal attacks with more personal attacks, this can apply to both people. So, please don’t respond to personal attacks with more of your own, just report it! * If you find yourself getting angry at someone it’s a good sign to step back from Reddit for a few minutes and come back with a clearer head Thanks! Edit: clarify wording

Yeah and we failed, on the way out people started to pretend there wasn’t a fire drill going on. Some people never even left the classroom and some who made it outside to the group got counted for their class and immediately snuck back inside. Then people lit an actual fire during the fire drill and a large group that took it seriously suddenly decided to walk back inside with all the people who never took it seriously.

Unless it makes money, nobody’s going to do anything about climate change. We’re all fucking dead and I say good riddance.

A lot of middle class people went bankrupt and had their businesses ruined while all the robber baron High Tech billionaires made huge profits off the Covid-1984. Social equality is not a goal of the world government industrial complex or else they would be pushing a completely different agenda.
