How will historians see us 50 years from now? 100? 1000?

>>531183
Who's us? This past decade will be seen as the time of the "smartphone"/technology revolution when technology became smaller, faster, and more powerful.

Historians don't work that way mate. History has existed since the early 19th century with works like Ranke. Given the history of ideas there are two outcomes: either history fades as an intellectual fad, or it transmogrifies into something we cannot expect to know.

The study of past has been happening longer than that Rankedroid

I don't think this meets the rules to be honest matey. Asking to discuss futurology and the present day by simply sliding in a reference to future historians ain't going to fly.

History hasn't been though. I notice you choose your words like an already one legged Cambodian chooses where to place his foot.

...They was be typical Negro and Arabian population of North America and Europe...

>50
about the same way we see the 70s
>100
same way we see the 40s
>1000
probably no particular way at all

Depends on how your define history -- I notice you choose your definition like a car driver chooses his hat.

Savages who did some very stupid decisions despite it was so obvious they are stupid decisions.

Thank you for insinuating that I drive a Volvo. It is not often on 4chan that an insinuation is used to deliver a compliment.

Does it fit in humanities by making us question what kind of legacy we're leaving?

It seems to be a more humanistic than scientific look at the future, so in my book it's good, also OP's pic is cancerous
>>
>>531271
No, there is no discipline of the humanities whose ambit is the questioning of the legacy we're leaving.
>>
>>531267
and which decisions would those be?

They into 2070 First Era was live into interesting period of yachts of cosmos, spiritual additional storey, first contact with extraterrestrial, new models of mixing human society and economics and first dog-level robots and et cetera and so on and so forth.

>>531277
dunno, we don't see them, they are obvious only in hindsight
>>
They won't

Who has time for the past anyways, geez.

History is bunk

I wonder how they will view mental health of today and if they think we are crazy. Are mental health disorders on the rise? or am I just living in my own world?

I don't think attending Hillary concerts counts as history

They will see us as the laziest generation before the great 3rd world war.

The only generation that valued hedonism above anything else.

The only generation that put their own "feelings" above anything else.

The only generation that almost died out just within one generation, because nobody breeds.

The last generation before the islamic takeover of the Western World.

Humans are weak as troops, only weaponry can help him. Humans usable only as pilots and drivers.

Mass suicide squadrons will patrol the streets recruiting volunteers in city-by-city wide ambitions for weekly, daily, hourly gatherings.

They'll read some shitty poetry, maybe watch a film. Some of them will cry and others will remind them why they are here. Why they have come. At this moment in time they are taking control. They are making a meaningful choice. They will console between themselves and talk readily about what they expect. Some will wish for nothing, others will demand it.

They will gather after this table therapy and chitter chatter around a large oval pit with 90 degree edges dug by a JVC not fully out of view by a guy who failed geometry because his mother was with two customers in the kitchen (he smokes while reading the latest issue of his favourite drug-monthly magazine focusing on the important topics facing savants of psychedelic and depressant stimulants - all on a worn out electronic newspaper with a 512 peta flop memory concealing a stash of illicit pornography ruled harmful by the people's magistrate - and will look up and then back down and will do this at every gathering).

Using the group's standard issue of Benchly supply kitchen knives - donated for cost - each member will, along with their arm-band buddy, slice chop or hack at their own limbs. They will disembowel each other or expose their aorta, and their limp corpses will tumble into the pit and they will have died.

Called it. Print screen this.
