The Future of Progress

Postby The Parkus Empire » Sun Mar 04, 2018 3:38 pm

A thread for your predictions about the the future of progress. Feel free to speculate and debate. Here are mine.

Sexual experimentation will become part of the public school curriculum.

Homosexuals will become increasingly militant, incorporating uniforms into their parades

Everyone will get bored by MLK after the bazillionth time, and so Black History Month will focus instead on celebrating the cultural legacy of twerking. Kanye West will be featured on American currency

HBO's Tits and Blood will be acclaimed by critics as "hip, stylish and sexy." Intended for mature audiences.

In the United States, "living document" judges will rule that the Fourteenth Amendment protects polygamy and mandates all states having polygamous marriage; those who object will be dismissed as "polyphobes". Judges will also rule freedom of speech protects child pornography, and due process protects pederasty.

After realizing space exploration's returns are dwarfed by costs, atheists will cease to support it. Science will instead focus on pony sexbots and making anime real

Euthanasia will be used to treat depression among children.

Islam will become the largest religion in Europe. The Pope will hail this as a "victory against colonialism."

This is satire.... Right? Or a demonstration of the slippery slope fallacy?

Neat

Homosexuals will become increasingly militant, incorporating uniforms into their parades


I, for one, welcome our fabulous overlords.

Everyone will get bored by MLK after the bazillionth time, and so Black History Month will focus instead on celebrating the cultural legacy of twerking. Kanye West will be featured on American currency


President West, you mean.

HBO's Tits and Blood will be acclaimed by critics as "hip, stylish and sexy." Intended for mature audiences.


I'd watch it.

In the United States, "living document" judges will rule that the Fourteenth Amendment protects polygamy and mandates all states having polygamous marriage; those who object will be dismissed as "polyphobes". Judges will also rule freedom of speech protects child pornography, and due process protects pederasty.


Polygamy is cool. No comment on the weird pedophilia thing.

After realizing space exploration's returns are dwarfed by costs, atheists will cease to support it. Science will instead focus on pony sexbots and making anime real


Hawt

Euthanasia will be used to treat depression among children.


Effective

Islam will become the largest religion in Europe. The Pope will hail this as a "victory against colonialism."


Serves them right for ending the coolest religions on the planet, like Hellenic Paganism and Germanic Paganism.

All in all, 10/10 predictions I support them all wholeheartedly and totally and 100% unironically as a proud member of the Liberal Club.

I think Parkus's conflation of polygamy with pedophilia is more that a little weird.

I will not be satisfied until the Old Gods are restored to their rightful places as the dominant global religion.

I agree entirely with this, Hellenism should be our state religion.

OP I do disagree entirely that things like child porn will ever be protected by law.

It's just putting them side by side makes it seem as though you believe they are equally harmful.

Parkus is either secretly ranting about "those darn Progressives" in a way he thinks is clever or... no, wait, that's the only option.

Hehehe. This is a funny original post.

Space travel is worth the cost though, even if it is not profitable to begin with. Humanity needs to get the feck out of the crib already.

This is like the stereotypical old person Facebook post about modern politics and culture, complete with an unnecessary dig at Game of Thrones.

Pretty much the thing i'm deeply scared of in this post is the space travel thing. I fear that the left will try and take science into giving people lifetimes of sloth and ecstacy instead of saving our civilization from time and traversing the stars. All of the others seem rather outlandish or fixable.

As for my actual predictions of the future - I think automation will cause a major shift in the economy in the future. In which direction, I'm not sure.

I'm hoping the irritating identity politics fad dies out and the focus of the left returns to doing right by people, and promoting truth and freedom rather than trying to alter it.

1. Nope.

2. The odds of militant gays are nearly zero.

3. There's no way humans will be that stupid.

4. I have no Idea.

5. Child porno will never be legal, polygamy will also not have enough support to get to the Court.

6. Nope, human space empire will beat anime 100% of the time beacuse gold.

7. That would be massively counter intuitive and just be as stupid as the British law that executed you for trying to kill yourself.

8. Doubt it. But it wouldn't really matter, people believe what they believe.




As for mine:

Robots take away more and more jobs, unemployment reaches over 25% to 50%. Universal basic income kicks in.
More defiling of the innocent until proven guilty idea as more and more intrusive laws come into play.

US gun control debate goes nowhere, people still get shot.

More space travel, eventual colonization of mars.
