Great thread OP and some valid concerns touched upon.
Given the thoughtlessness with which we have given away our privacy, it isn't hard to imagine the general populous giving away our humanity.
However, with extensive genetic samples and ample historical records we could always come back from nearly any catastrophic mistake of the highest order.
The biggest threat is the destruction of the planet so we have to become a class 2 civilization.
Unless the solar system is under threat so then we would have to become a class 3 civilization.
Unless the Galaxy gets torn asunder in which case we are hosed.
Can we just skip class 1? We don't have much time...
