In 1900, we looked back at slavery in disgust at our savagery. In 1975, we looked back at how Women and Black people were treated, and were disgusted at our savagery.
What will we look back on in disgust in 2050? What is currently regarded as acceptable, but savage in the eyes of those from the future?

Posting on /sci/ because you're smart and I like you.

I can't help but think that cancer would be seen as a very small issue compared to many others. Surely there are other medical problems we would see as worse? Tuberculosis, or malaria, for example.

Then I do a post because it's my thread and I can do what I want apparently. Sounds interesting.

I think the thing we will see as most repulsive will depend upon the course china takes with regards to Africa, and I know too little about China's foreign policy to comment. If China and India decide to aid nations in extreme poverty, such as those in Africa, then we will quickly grow to see our past actions with regards to the continent as disgustingly primitive and greedy. If they decide to not intervene, on the other hand, our attitudes will stay much the same.

2125/general future predictions are also welcome, I should say now.

i think we already exaggerate every type of behavior as "unacceptable" to some degree in the west. the most savage thing might be how calculated the relationship between corporations and their people are. everything is based on shitty statistics and centered around massive unnecessary profits. some companies deserve to be empires, and its far from "all rich people are assholes," but relative to other potential issues i see it as the most overwhelming in this context (unless nothing changes in 50 years, which is hard to predict).

we've still got savagery in the middle east and parts of africa which probably won't end anytime soon, and maybe we'll look at all this pseudo-thug activity that spread through music/tv as pretty shitty, but really this question is pointless (or maybe just too complicated for what it's worth) to science and to people who enjoy looking at things through a scientific approach. this generation has accomplished enormously productive things, and the future looks even more promising.

With all due respect, that's wrong. The west has been responsible for so much damage to Africa, in terms of resource removal and of forced imperialism, that there is no way we can blame them for the situation they are in.
Perhaps if we hadn't taken 300 years worth of citizens then forced authority over them for a further 150, Africa would have less problems with dem crackaz trying to help out.

While I agree that the capitalism we have now will be seen as almost feudal in future, 1) I don't believe it to be in as few as 40 years, and 2) I believe capitalism will continue to function in some forms.

How dare you! Nowhere in the Torah or the Talmud does it say we have to circumcise our children. It was a one time thing for Abraham to seal his covenant with G-d. That some Jews continued it as a cultural practice until recently, or a few ultra-Orthodox still do, should not be used as a criticism of the religion as a whole. G-d always intended that the man becomes circumcised when he is ready to join the community as an adult, not to be forced on a baby. Even implying that we would do this to a child is worse than mistaken, it is antisemitic.

There's a very easy way for Africans to fix that.

Rather than sitting around and fucking, they tell the West, "Please, we don't want your aid," because the West will NEVER stop shipping that shit otherwise, and force themselves to do something.

It's easy to blame the west for short-sighted actions, but you have to look at it from more than just that kind of myopic viewpoint. Just stopping shipments to Africa because it's better for them will be looked at as a sign of "giving up" and will massively influence the relationship between the Western country that does so and the African nation in question.

The problem is, more and more journalists and college graduates are forgoing the trenches to pursue a different career path. Instead of reporting the news, they’re working to help manipulate it as public relations specialists. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in fact, in 1980 there were .45 PR people and .36 journalists per every 100,000 workers. As of 2008, that number had shifted radically. There are now .90 PR people per 100,000 workers and just .25 journalists. As Columbia Journalism Review reports in its May-June 2011 issue, that’s a ratio of more than three-to-one, better equipped and better financed to influence what the public sees and hears.

You learnt basic science before you reached school?
Also, what you learn pre-school depends so massively on what your parents do with you that I don't think it be regarded as a valid measure of ability. e.g. My mother thought about teaching me mathematics up to a KS2 level, but decided against it as I would end up not paying attention in class, apparently.

>> No.3228410

I disagree.

You're working under the assumption that people are only as intelligent and smart as they were when they were 8, which is fundamentally wrong. Humans develop at different rates, myself being an example. While I'm not the smartest guy, I'm certainly more intelligent and capable than I was when I was 14.

If you're proposing that people be "taught differently" because some jackass decided one wasn't as smart as someone else thanks to an arbitrary exam score, and all the social entanglements and issues that would result of that kind of system, than I hope you never get into a position that can change anything.

That we should provide all of our criminals with food and shelter free of charge, but require our law-abiding citizens to earn them. That all land should be owned, but many own none at all, so there is no place for a citizen without property or friends to legally be. The idea that each citizen must earn even his barest living, rather than be free to feed from his share of nature's bounty as even an animal in the woods may expect.

Perhaps it will be remembered as necessary, but it will also be looked on as barbaric, especially at this time, already so close to full automated provision of sustenance, when we have passed the point where human labor is the most necessary thing for production and reached a new level of being once again limited by our natural resources, which no man made.

I don't really think it will be come kind of democratic socialism, though. More like the way people put out bird feeders.

I don't believe that at all. We'll just say for shits and giggles that you, at age 7, probably not tall enough to suck your dads penis (that came later, and your father came soon after that), had the capability to grasp intermediate mathematics and physics.

Even with this capability, you still have to sit down and physically study, memorize, practice, and apply. Especially in classes like history, biology, and physics where many key elements cannot be derived outside of an advanced labratory or extensive research.

Basically speaking, you don't pop out of a vagina knowing about every ancient culture and their relevance, nor knowing that the metric measurement of the acceleration of gravity is 10 m/s.

>What will we look back on in disgust in 2050?

How Jewish people poisoned and corrupted the cultures of everyone that ever listened to them.

>> No.3234408
Quoted by: >>3235793

The only really wrong thing I see is "kill all non-muslims" and maybe "discriminate against women"

And can you prove they really advocate that?
I've heard the only people that do that are the terrorists and small sects, but maybe anon can show me the truth

Allowing people that cannot take care of their children to procreate

Actually, we're better at resisting Jewish multiculturalism. Funny how both countries you mentioned are having serious problems with Muslim citizens killing natural-born citizens.

>> No.3235793


Anon is merciful today, and will show you the truth:


Note support for extreme punishments, among other things. Thats enough to hate the muslim scum.

Male circumcision.

Sometimes I wonder how the country will react when it's public knowledge that it's bad. Straight up denial? Mass depression?

>> No.3236193

by "we" you mean liberal retards right? especially liberal retards that suppress the fact that women always had "rights" and they played their role for best survival of the species until MEN created jobs that women could finally handle, blacks were not only the first slave owners in america but also in world history, and the list goes on.

youre uneducated and so are all the people who "look back on history with disgust"

>> No.3236203

Hunting. Industrial farming. Use of fossil fuels and nuclear power. Bans on marijuana (no, I don't smoke it). People actually smoking cigarettes.

Planning for products to break after x amount of hours use so you have to buy more. One of the great problems we have right now, more of a giant umbrella problem nurturing many more.

Eating meat, especially seeing how it takes many times the weight of the animal in grain to raise it to maturity for slaughter and 1000's of litres of water. Titanic waste of everything.

Television. Utterly pathetic. What should be no more than a trivial stepping stone in display technology for combination with a computer dominates our entire worldview. Psychological cancer.

>> No.3236272

I'd like to believe that humans are capable of learning from the mistakes of the past but I don't have that much faith now.

People in 2050 will probably look back at the start of the century in disgust because we had a chance to stop global warming before it went out of control and we didn't. Persecution of gays and atheists too, probably.

We're going to eat crickets. More protein per gram than chicken or beef and far more economical. No one ever takes the idea seriously, but I think if you use the right spices, or provide dipping sauce, people won't find it that bad.

>> No.3236352

Homophobia probably, hopefully intellectual property.

A significant amount of time after that religion.

>> No.3236440

Why not eat irradiated cricket tissue? Find a cricket with aggressive cancer, give the tumour what it needs, and cut cube off of it like tofu. Sterilise it to prevent it from growing inside the body. Obtain food people won't find as weird if you don't tell them.

>> No.3236442


Doesn't sound too bad to me. Well in terms of drastic future survival techniques it doesn't.
