Downfall of Society.

Post by wubstep » Mon Aug 01, 2011 9:47 pm

Sorry about the title, staying as far away from "2012 end of da werld" shit, can we talk about the actual stuff going on?

Arab spring, European uprising, US financial disaster, UK media overhaul, rise in protests etc.

Things do seem to be about to kick off, any rational predictions on what we'll see occur in the next few months/year?

iphone 4s :corntard:

in all seriousness, there has always been a huge list like that at any given time in history, i think life has gotten a lot better for us common folk. maybe we will see a paradigm shift in the near future tho, hopefully it's technology driven

Arab spring, =GOOD THING
European uprising, =DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU MEAN (Googled this seems like a good idea)
US financial disaster =IT WAS BOUND TO HAPPEN ONE DAY FUCK THEM
UK media overhaul, =GOOD THING
rise in protests =GOOD THING, SHAME THEY MAKE BUGGER ALL DIFFERENCE.

I hope the world will change but it doesn't seem to that much.

My view of the future is mostly of the two competing science dreams, one of the looming environmental catastrophy, global warming, over population, complete loss of animal life, and the other of the astounding and limitless advances of science that seem just out of reach.

politics and economics, the media and popular culture, seem so low that they can only improve.

i at the moment think US debt was never going to default, it was just a threat being used to weaken obama so the right can try to regain their grip on financial policies, to keep them in pocket and also to weaken obamas position circa voting season.
money crises come and go, there will be another boom. western involvement in said boom, now thats another question. one hopes rising economic powers can learn from the mistakes of previous crashes.

if by european uprising you mean greek protests, thats yet more economies faltering.

i think the biggest threat that we face as a whole race, is stemming the spread of far-right thinking, amongst all nationalities, before it gets serious. a financially minded, liberal alternative to party politics would help things in the right way; the coalition had so much potential, alas they should have put vince where george is, dave should try less hard to remain liked by the public and nick should have tried less hard to be liked by dave. oh well.

It’s exactly what it looks like.

This is the Last Days foretold in the Bible: not the end of the physical Earth--only the end of Human Rulership as we know it. It’s obvious to see its unsustainable.

The good news is, great change is coming, but it won’t be by human hands…

I for one will continue to ignore all that goes around me until I look up one day to find that the whole capitalist system has fallen in on itself :4:

yeah its fucked the population chart says it all really...we re in for some interesting changes thats for sure but im excited for the break from the numb bullshit that just keeps looping itself on this planet and apocalypse or not i cant help but feel like we re on the edge of something BIG and what a feeling to be able to incapsulate into music!!! for me its at the edge just before the beginning and just before the end of things that the magic happens.

Shit is usually going off. But shit is definitely going off in a big way right now. And even bigger pretty soon? If you're feeling it, maybe you are feeling this:

10yrs ago a webpage took 10mins to load and I thought it was amazing.

Today a webpage takes 10secs to load and I call it a piece of shit.
