Some of us do, some of us don't.
You do not care much either way, but I do, and pretty much everyone I choose to associate with does on some level. Its not as if we are blind to the
degeneracy of some of our fellow human beings, but we do not think that extinction is something we ought to embrace, because the human being is a
complicated and multifaceted thing, such that just as there are deeply evil people in the world, there are also deeply decent ones, compassionate
ones, folk whose ability to spread and experience joy are undiminished despite circumstances being far less than ideal, even in circumstances which
But it really does not matter how much I care, or how much the people I know care about these things, unless those in power are willing to prepare
the human race for moving outward and forward, not regressing back to the ignorance and amorality of the past.
Unless the power in the world is directed at promoting our survival as a species, beyond the next hundred, thousand or million years, what I think of
it, what you think of it, what anyone thinks or cares about, has no meaning or importance at all, because unless that power is directed toward
maintaining and advancing the position of humanity, protecting it from the threat posed by its own endeavours, from the eventual expansion of the sun
and destruction of the planet we were birthed from, spreading the species among the stars like sycamore seeds on the wind, then the species will die
The view that holds that a person ought not care, or ought to feel good about not caring much what happens to the species once they and their
offspring have already passed from this existence, is one I find deeply troubling, and is toxic to the human species, a threat to it as great as any
other we face.
