What age do you think we are in?

Recommended Posts

An age of information? An age of misinformation? An age of Trump? gang gang

Seriously though how would you describe the age we are living in with a simple title if you could?

 

God bless everyone :)

The scientific name is the Anthropocene, but I'm going with Zap's description.

Believe it or not some people have moved beyond mere survival.

Yes but what is the point of that analysis for those people? To gather 1000 plus points on an internet forum?

I'm at an age where I'm looking to find myself as I've always been and I'll always be.

It's the age of the extravagant conservative, the age of informed ignorance, filled with wasteful exploiters and passive despoilers.  An age of boring amazement. Clearly it is the age of the Oxymoron.

Emotional survival underlying the human condition, perhaps the mammalian condition, says otherwise.

Can you make the argument please? Just saying it doesn't make it so.

What exactly is "the human condition"?

What is "emotional survival"?

What is "the mammalian condition"?

We're caught between how fast we can change things and how slow we need things to change. We need to behave differently but too many people want us to behave EXACTLY this way so they can make more money. Societies always have growing pains, and hopefully we can explore together a better direction than the one we've been taking.

IIRC, you let the breeze get your hair caught in the trees, so you have only yourself to blame.

I’m in the middle of a self induced therapy of treating the conservative religious a little more politely. I don’t see much progress though and the prognosis isn’t positive.

Worthless statement imo, being aimed so broadly and so easily refuted. A more granular look might show an incompetent businessperson who lobbied a politician to stifle a scientific report. But this is another point for zapatos.

I would think if everyone treated everybody else, regardless of religion, a little more politely, quite a bit more progress would be made.
