Would you mind if the world ended?

Postby Arthenius » Sun Oct 20, 2019 5:59 pm

Does anyone on NS have a bad anxiety about the end of humanity or the end of civilization as we know it? Or do you not care less about it? As we see, there are possible war, economic, infrastructure or societal events that have a chance to nearly extinct us within even a short time (not considering natural events, just man-made) or otherwise imposes dystopian or unpleasant conditions on our living. It looks like the arm of the law is getting a little bigger every day and countries are becoming more police state-ish combined with more terrorist incidents and the means to hurt a wider amount of people with it (like radical Islamic terror in the West). What else I find upset about it is that some of this at least could have been averted if us and our ancestors of the past made better decisions.

What does NS think about this? How nerved does some stuff in the world going more to shit make you feel? We can discuss this. It can also serve as a thread for encouraging and helping others who feel some things.

Libertarian Purity Score: 148/160
Political Compass: Far-Right Social Libertarian.
Right: 9.94, Libertarian: 5.84
Catholic Libertarian, almost Anarcho-Capitalist. Government has no authority, all authority is from God. God grants us free will, and the government should not infringe upon it. Legislating morality is wrong. Only exception is when protecting rights to life, liberty, and property. Abortion is killing an infant, and is one of the few things governments have a responsibility to prevent. Pro-Trump, though I wish he were more for free trade and more against deficits, because he's been an effective weapon against the real enemies of freedom: The Left. Unrestrained capitalism is a beautiful thing; it does wonders for the standard of living of everyone, especially the poor.

In all seriousness, I think it would be the only way I could be free, happy, and grow. This world has become so stifled and toxic that I think we need a decent reset, if only to break the grip of those that would make things steadily worse.

When I think of a good future, it always resembles a sort of "soft apocalypse" setting. The sort of world presented in stories like Yokohama Kaidashi Kikō come to mind.

Our modern term end of the world basically means the end of our current world order. The apocalypse could happen without an extinction of our kind. Will humanity survive to 2100? Almost certainly. Will earth be here? Definitely unless an asteroid big enough to blow us up manages to blindside us. Will the current present day nation states still be here? Many probably won't be

It depends on who survives and what the aftermath is.

If the world ends and no human survives, I'll be fine, as long as the rest of nature gets to carry on like normal.

If the entire planet ends and everything dies, then I'd be a little concerned and prefer that nature be saved.

But all in all, I want to see how people react to it, it'll be hilarious.
