Children really ARE our future, and you know what? The future is where all of today’s unsolvable problems will be solved. By fucking up the the planet and society as much as we can now, we are giving the children of the future the greatest gift there is: necessity. Global Warming? Don’t worry about it, some kid will solve it. They HAVE to. Same goes for world hunger! And you know what the cure for cancer is? Future kids! So many great inventions in the future.
Really, we should work on screwing up the world EVEN MORE in order to challenge our kids to be better people. Think about it, if we flooded our city streets with molten lava, and we lived in a burning, melting lava-hell, sooner or later our kids would figure out how to make lava-proof boats! And if we started keeping rabid wolverines as pets, a number of people would die, yes, but eventually our kids would domesticate them.
Sure, a world without cancer and with plentiful food is fine and good, but it’s not half as radical as a world where humanity is surfing waves of lava with their pet wolverines.
The description here is pretty much the best thing I’ve read all day
a future of surfing waves of lava with pet wolverines is my only hope for the future
This future is strangely reminiscent of Dwarf Fortress…
Flooding cities with lava is all well and good, but if you really want to challenge our children we should slash funding for education, outlaw abortion, and put them in jail for ten years for having a little pot. Hell, we could even gut social security, but make sure that it only starts in ten years just so our children know just how much contempt we have for them.
And let’s make sure that we not only outnumber them, let’s pass draconian voter ID laws in order to further disenfranchise them politically just so it’s even more challenging for them to fix our mess.
You see? This is why Baby Boomers are the best.
But if everyone would follow that philosophy, wouldn’t we become more… stagnated?
Political commentary! Didn’t know ASP had kids.
