Humanity would have to go extinct for no doom to be a reality.

Simple answer? We don't.

It's already kind of too late. Even if it weren't, the political will is not there to break the iron triangles. Washington, D.C. isn't real life. They don't have to deal with real things. It's just a giant team sport - one that scores by meddling with people's lives.

As the U.S. is such a huge powerhouse - both in terms of causing climate change and power to change things - if it isn't 100% behind stopping it, it's not going to get stopped.

Very true. It's sad because humans have the capability to be so much better than we are. We're the only species that intentionally destroys its own habitat, makes its own air unbreathable, its own water undrinkable, and drives its own food supply into extinction. We litter our lands with landmines, traps & artificially walls & moats to keep other humans away. We even intentionally kill off entire branches of our own species because they're not socially desirable.

I actually think that if there was intelligent life elsewhere, it would be nothing like us. The next step in "intelligent" evolution would be creatures that are hardwired to help each other & only compete in good things. Just imagine civilizations that didn't have to waste any resources or brainpower on wars, weapons, or law enforcement, because the citizens were naturally compliant & helping each other. That means no militaries, no intelligence agencies, no border patrol, no fbi/dea/atf/national guard, no swat or cops, no prison guards, no body guards or security firms, no martial arts dojos, etc. Now imagine all of those people & their collective brainpower & resources strictly working to improve the living conditions of the collective.

Without wars to constantly ruin civilizations & cause them to have to reinvent the wheel (among other things lol), those civilizations would have an endless period of technological growth. And if they instantly shared all gains & new processes/techniques, the rate of change would be staggering (imagine no patents, trademarks, etc -just becoming a hero for being the one who discovered the cure for syphilis). I'd think it would take them no more than 1000years from their creation to greatly surpass modern humans. Every life saving medicine is instantly available to all who need it, all metals & sciences are used to advance the collective, and politicians are rivals because one side prioritizes longer lifespans while the other prioritizes better quality of living.

Wow, what a rant. Guess I had that bottled up lol
paradise to me just perfect. To bad we suc collectivly

A good mindset.
Now apply that to our entire species.
What will take us forward in a sustainable manner?

We could live for hundreds of millions of years if we worked that out.
Our technology could one day prevent a meteor from wiping us of the earth,if we used it wisely.
But the way we are going,technology could demand so much of our planets resources,that we die of scarcity before we work out how to live in unity.

To be honest? Cull the herd or move on , out unto the stars and planets. We have become a weed on this planet. Just my honest opinion.weed nah a parasite all we do is feed unfortunatly

Now,I sadly agree with much of that sentiment,mostly from reading history and seeing where we are headed.

SnF because at least you see it. What you're saying in short goes something
like this I believe." If we don't change our direction immediately, we may
end up exactly where we are headed"

But where are we headed? And how does it have anything to do with
what you want?

It has nothing to do with what I want-its more a deep seated feeling that we are doing it wrong,we are being exploited for the money we can make the few dark ones who care nothing for our future as a species.
But what can we do as individuals?

Our entire system relies upon the ever expanding destruction for profit of our biosphere.
Companies and economies MUST grow each year under our system,or there is turmoil,war,famine etc.
Our planet won't grow,and as we humans bloom like a fungus or insect plague,we become more unsustainable by the day.

Until like the fungus or insect plagues,we will burn out our very survival capability and turn back to dust.

We were doing OK until the industrial revolution.
That was the turning point I think.
Look at human expansion and population growth before and after the industrial revolution.
That was the wrong turn,yet we have benefited massivley from it as a species-but maybe only in the short term.
Time will tell,and I hope I am wrong,for all our sakes.
