What will society look down on us for in 100 years?

  1. Basic question. Think back 100 years from now and what people thought was good or acceptable and how it compares to today. Now think of a 100 years from today and what things may be though of bad in the future.
  2. Valuing machines over lives.

  4. Liberals and Conservatives.

    I guess extreme left/right wingers.
  5. The society in 100 years will probably be even shittier than it is right now, but thankfully, my ass will be long gone by then. lol

  6. It's very unlikely this earth will be around for another 100 year's.
  7. I think it'll be the opposite, really. There's going to be an even bigger emphasis on machines, humans will probably be more symbiotic. Singularity and whatnot.
  8. -Definitely religion and all its various mythological/fantasy ideas of gods, spirits, angels, demons, devils, miracles, spirits worlds, and prophecies of the end times, all foretold through an abundance of really old, archaic books. Add belief in the supernatural as a whole while you're at it.

    -Probably slut-shaming, even though I'm usually a proud slut-shamer myself.

    -All the hate for homosexuals.

    -Probably the death penalty, unfortunately. I don't have any issue with it myself, but there seems to be more and more bleeding-heart individuals that are finding so-called 'hypocrisy' and 'barbarity' in the notion of exercising the death penalty as a form of legal punishment; Makes me wonder if this might end up becoming the consensus view amongst people in the future. Meh.

    -We'll no doubt look down on the whole idea of slaughterhouses (and maybe hunting as a sport/fun activity as well) when our technology eventually allows us to create food from animals (hamburgers, fried chicken, chicken sandwiches, hot dogs, etc.) in a laboratory without the need to kill any animals to do it. They're already making progress on this by testing out how well lab-created hamburgers taste compared to the real thing.
