ITT, We shit all over the future for SOCIAL JUSTICE!
« on: June 22, 2017, 04:57:17 am »
this is why i'm sincerely hoping we colonize a planet in my lifetime. It's the only semi-possible escape i can see from this madness.

Even if we started this very minute, there isn't time to build the infrastructure here to get there, even if there was a there to go to and a way to get there.

Also, you might accidentally colonialize some poor single cell organism or vent worm.

I would happily nuke this planet or worse to prevent human beings from colonizing space with rape, murder, and anti-vaxx-type bullshit.

If I were an intelligent, space faring culture, I would throw an isolation grid over this planet faster than any dude could ever put on a condom.

The only solace I find in this world, philosophically, is that we've used up too many resources to let the madness OUT.

The way I see it, if Roger is right and nothing matters, fuck it, I'll die in a half-ass space rocket among the stars rather than slowly watch this planet die among a crowd of idiots.

At least space is cold.  Which is more than can be said for the way this planet is going.

All of the mushy-headed anti-vaxx thinking will be falling off to the wayside, soon enough.

Rape and murder, on the other hand, will enjoy a brief but flourishing revival.  Also cannibalism.

If we can't get our shit together here, we won't be able to get our shit together anywhere else, either. I'm not sure what that would accomplish besides fucking up more planets (which aren't really even ours to fuck up in the first place).
Im guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk, Charles Wick said. It was very complicated.

Yeah, thankfully I think we missed our shot, as a species, by insisting on using up all our energy resources to make and transport disposable consumer goods.

Right now the human race is one Trump tweet away from a global extinction event. Continued existence of the human race (if you happen to be one of those weirdos who thinks it's something of intrinsic value) is wholly dependent on not having all our eggs in one basket.

Also, in the absence of any other claimant, the entire universe is ours to fuck up as we see fit.

If you're not one of the freaks who values our species then why the fuck would you value any species? Or universe? It's just a pile of crap, floating in space.

Yea I kinda have to agree on this.

We could build an enormous colony ship, say it's meant to colonize Mars and turn it into a Libertarian wonderland where no one has to vaccinate anything, the government only exists to make sure everyone is a good Christian, and cucks won't be allowed.

And then we could fly that ship into the sun.

Perfect solution 10/10: wins  for actually doing something practical and feasible that demonstrates valuing our species.

Semi-nihilistic whinging aside, am I the only one who gets tired of the whole trope of "humans are the real monsters" thing in sci-fi? Like, I get that were shitty, but it seems premature to assume we're the shittiest thing to come out of the universe.  I mean we evolved this way, why wouldn't we assume some other species would evolve  down a similar path due to similar evolutionary pressures and be just as rapey and murdery and dicks as we are? Hell, what if we're not even that bad, all things considered? Who's to say the Orks from Warhammer 40 aren't on the other side of the Galaxy, being more war-like than could possibly be, on our worst day?
