ATS is probably the best source where we can find valuable information about our planet, our space, and humanity. We get to see information that is
much less filtered than your average news center, and we see topics that your average news center will never touch. Nevertheless, this information can
be incredibly troubling.
The rational people of the world will notice incredible flaws within humanity, fortunately here on ATS those rational people come in droves.
~ We see that pharmaceutical companies buy-out and kill cures for debilitating diseases and conditions, simply to make a buck off the weak.
~ We see massive corporations with hands in every back-pocket of our government, and controlling every aspect of our lives.
~ We see humanities population growing at an exponential rate, and nearing the verge of global collapse because of it.
~ We see fear mongering to control the masses
Everything seems to be manipulated or abused to some degree.
With these factors (and certainly more), the next 100 years may be an incredibly difficult time to survive as a stable species. What do you think we
should be focusing on in order to surpass the next 100 years and keep on living and thriving?
It appears that we can't donate to foundations which search for a cure for anything, because we've all seen the hundreds of topics on ATS where a
cure has been produced for all cancers. Heck, even in my own town a university has discovered that very thing, multiple times, only to be shot
Governmental collapse seems like it could come at any moment within some major countries. America itself looks like it's holding on to it's last
thread before a total revolution.
Our population keeps growing far faster than we are able to produce sustainable energies, medicines, jobs, and food.
Personally, I don't think Humanity as a whole can change so quickly as to save what we currently have. It appears, to me, that the next 100 years may
very well be our last as a structured species (if you could call us that). Fortunately, Technology also grows exponentially. Due to the likelihood of
humanity being incapable of changing as fast as it needs to, it may be best for technology to take us to the next level, and leave our home planet.
It would seem that our only chance is by populating another planetary body, and I think we should be focusing on that being our savior, as we are too
stubborn as a species to save ourselves, despite knowing we're in trouble.
What do you think the next 100 years hold for us? And what do you think is necessary to save us (if we're in need of saving)?
