Everything possible is.
Is it possible that religion will resurface as a driving force in society?
I certainly hope not.
Is it possible that there will once again be pressure to be part of "the machine?"
I have never seen that pressure gone in the first place.
But I guess it also depends on what kind of "the machine" you are referring to. Perhaps we are thinking about two different concepts.
Is it possible that feminism will collapses, and men will once again treat women as objects?
I think it is possible. But just because feminism collapse, does not have to mean that women will be treated as objects. I have seen very different
levels of feminism, from the rights to equal salary to the "kill all men" versions. I believe in women rights to equality, but still, men and women
will always be different in many ways.
That is how we are created.
I grew up in a home with my father working very hard to provide for the family and my mother staying at home taking care of us children, cooking and
taking care of the household (working just as hard).
I am raised with the "fact" that that is how a good, healty and stabile family works. Some women would argue against this as something going against
the feminist "agenda", but I do not see any problem with a situation like the one mentioned above.
Just because a man and women have these basis, does not mean that there is no respect, love or equality in the relationship. I believe it is healthy
for the kids to have a mother whom is at home, supporting them and setting up a solid family and foundation. In a sense, the women this way provides a
very important role.
The man provides economical stability and the women provides a mental stability for the children.
It all comes together creating what I think children needs to grow up and becoming good individuals.
Though when it comes to the first years of a child´s life, I think it is very important that both parents take turns to be at home 24/7 for longer
periods, but not all people are lucky enough to be able to have the luxury of doing that.
Personally I would love to be a permanent stay-at-home-dad, with the wife working. Does that mean I am a feminist?
Is it possible that atheism will collapse as well?
I think Sachyriel answered this question very good.
