Lets talk about the end of the world for a moment /x/. September 11th, 2001. The day America woke up, constant wars, NSA and other alphabet soup agencies rising in power, The civil unrest in this country, the migrant crisis in Europe, ISIS increasing in size and power as a true threat to the west.
All memes aside, are we closing in on either WW3, the end of humanity, societal collapse, civil war?
It seems that everyone is pushing for it, combine all of this with the population of earth steadily increasing.
I see many numerous scenarios in how it could start. What do you see, anon?
Daily reminder that the time period you're living in isn't actually special just because you're in it.
Unrest in the US? I think someone may be taking the Branch Dildonians a little too seriously! We had far, far more pronounced unrest in the thirties and the sixties. ISIS a true threat to the West? For realsies?
I can't tell if you're just taking the piss, OP, or if you're really this much a victim of Infowars.
well lets see ww1 we wanted to fight the aliens but werent united so they destroyed us easily for fun
ww2 we were almost united and tried to get germany to join us, and then they destroyed us easily
when we dont unite... we lose
we are approaching an end to humanity but defintely not an end to the world. it is heading exactly to the destination that is planned out.
I don't think the entirety of society is going to collapse. However, when you consider that we have nuclear warheads in almost every continent and in every niche of the earth, and when you consider that tension in the world is rising and how many hotheads we have in every layer of government and society -- it will only takes one or two mistakes until we'll eventually nuke ourselves to death.
Even if that threat is eliminated, the planet is dealing with overpopulation, declining forestation, sea water contamination, fresh water getting more and more scarce, it's most likely that as people get more and more hungry fascistic movements will start to reign supreme again. Right now, without anything happening, we have a huge segment of society calling for building walls and exporting foreigners. Can you imagine how many refugees there will be once some countries are starving and getting flooded by rising sea levels? Humanity does not have the cohesiveness required to get through the next 20 years in my opinion.
In the grand scheme of things, I feel we're barely out of our diapers as a race. If we DID some how get all wiped out in the near future, I'm going to be very disappointed.
Goddamn boy they got you skeert.
America didn't wake up that day. That was the day it went to sleep. See the Patriot Act and how Big Brother is going to save all of us, US citizens and it's allies, from TERROR!
Good post, I think we will last much longer than 20 years although we will see some serious happenings. My guess is within the next 50-60 years there will be another world war/world scale event
>the government will save us all from terror
>All memes aside, are we closing in on either WW3, the end of humanity, societal collapse, civil war?
I don't know, are we?
>"The Third World War must be fomented by taking advantage of the differences caused by the "agentur" of the "Illuminati" between the political Zionists and the leaders of Islamic World. The war must be conducted in such a way that Islam (the Moslem Arabic World) and political Zionism (the State of Israel) mutually destroy each other. Meanwhile the other nations, once more divided on this issue will be constrained to fight to the point of complete physical, moral, spiritual and economical exhaustion…We shall unleash the Nihilists and the atheists, and we shall provoke a formidable social cataclysm which in all its horror will show clearly to the nations the effect of absolute atheism, origin of savagery and of the most bloody turmoil. Then everywhere, the citizens, obliged to defend themselves against the world minority of revolutionaries, will exterminate those destroyers of civilization, and the multitude, disillusioned with Christianity, whose deistic spirits will from that moment be without compass or direction, anxious for an ideal, but without knowing where to render its adoration, will receive the true light through the universal manifestation of the pure doctrine of Lucifer, brought finally out in the public view. This manifestation will result from the general reactionary movement which will follow the destruction of Christianity and atheism, both conquered and exterminated at the same time." 4
This was supposedly written in 1871 but it was made public 1959.
Ummm Isis? Half of isis attacks aren't isis, just when something happens isis screams it was them because they want to monger fear. Also, we have been bombing them for a while now, and especially with Russia's involvement, there really isn't that many Isis peoples left, they just try to make themselves seem bigger then they are. A good example of how weak they are atm is just before new years they posted all of social media trying to really all supporters for a final war on new years. Everybody laughed at them. This just goes to show how little members they have left. If they were all powerful and plentiful they wouldn't need to reach out to social media
Being misanthropic is normal for kids and even young adults these days. Many animal lovers are misanthropic for example (because aww poor chickens and cows, and the evil humans are destroying the beautiful planet), and animal lovers are everywhere.
I don't dislike humanity. I just think it would be cool to see the end of the world. Like, it will only happen once. Wouldn't it be amazing to experience?
I didn't say I was planning on surviving. I'll probably hunker down with the bf and cower until I starve to death. Plus, it will be the perfect time for end-of-the-world head. I'll die happy.
>the government will save us all from TERROR! (emphasis in original
>being this oblivious to blatant sarcasm
I was an animal lover as an edgy 14 year old. I also believed I was an animal stuck in a human body.
And absolutely not. Animals fucking HATE each other. Rival wolf packs are not nice to each other. They kill without mercy. And then you have people who think they are wolves fall in love with and cream their panties over every wolf picture they see on the internet. Animals don't give a fuck about their environment either. Everything is in their own interest to survive. Animals are not 'destroying the planet' simply because they are unable to. They have limited energy to do damage.
If a person was genuinely a wolf trapped in a human body for example, they would probably be very aggressive toward any animal, especially toward wolves and coyotes. They would only love their blood family and be very cautious of anyone else. Plus they would enjoy the smell of their own assholes.
People who think they were animals in past lives are a result or normal human romanticism.
Thats going to be a driving force. Look at how fast the price of water is increasing. We are destroying resources we can't live without. If you look at the amount of emissions our agriculture system produces, it's more than trains, cars, planes, etc. combined. By pushing our planet to a turning point, we will be creating a race for resources. The US government is in debt to many countries. Once resources run out, and the people who we owe money and resources to come to collect, we will see a world shift in politics. The US will be hard pressed to keep a strong military because without it, we'd become over run. In about thirty years, we will see a war on american soil. Nonessential civilians with be treated poorly. Almost as if they are second class citizens. Because the first class citizens will be the military, medical personnel, etc. who will be essential to.this.homefront war.
Sorry this is so disjointed, but im.drunk and trying my best to type and our thoughtsin order. I know I'm.probably.mistaken on somethings here, but just explain my errs. Lol
>I was an animal lover as an edgy 14 year old
that's not edgy
> I also believed I was an animal stuck in a human body.
>rest of post
stupid trash, and you clearly still think you understand animals and how they work but you don't.
your retardation beamed through the cosmos and lowered my iq by 10 points.
>All memes aside, are we closing in on either WW3, the end of humanity, societal collapse, civil war?
Yes and no. The entire world is up in arms, revolting against their governments, save for two countries: Iceland and the US. When you get good at planetary cybernetics, it'll look like a big joke and you'll never be afraid again.
Good thread though.
>and you clearly still think you understand animals and how they work but you don't.
And you do? Do you think animals are like in bambi where they talk to each other and cum in the soil because they love the environment so much?
He is not wrong about the wolves pal. Intraspecific attacks are extremely common.
Are you suggesting that if a wolf reincarnated into a human body, the human would fall in love with media depicting wolves?
Citation for wolf-wolf aggression:
Animals only have the biological capacity to fulfill their own survival needs. Do you know what happens when they're given more than that? Cats for instance are opportunistic feeders unless they're trained to trust that they will have food, so you can make a cat very fucking fat just by having an abundance of food around.
They can't mentally handle doing anything other than surviving and passing on genes
The doomsday clock is at 3 minutes to midnight, higher than some of the hairiest years of the cold war.
Not sure if that means anything to you, but I doubt the bulletin of atomic scientists are just blind fearmongers
Look up Oak Ridge National Laboratory and why it was shut down
The gov't is suppressing the use of Thorium as an alternative to Uranium in Nuclear power production even though Thorium would provide a significantly cleaner and more efficient output of energy
The gov't is only focusing on the use of Uranium, despite its drawbacks, because they need to obtain plutonium-239 that can be weaponized to make more WMD's
the guy says most uniformed people anthropomorphize animals and then the first thing he says is that "animals HATE each other" because wolf packs are "not nice to each other." he doesn't get animals, like i said.
i understand animalistic aggression. i understand the overwhelming drive for survival. he just has the opposite version of "animals are sweet and innocent" bullshit and he got butthurt because he wanted to be a wolf until he did some research and realized that they weren't actually having wolfy orgies like in his furry fantasies. he thinks he has some great insight but he's accepted the same kind of simplistic reduction.
>They can't mentally handle doing anything other than surviving and passing on genes
and this is incorrect as far as i'm concerned. certain mother animals will carry around dead offspring for days before they give up on it, some animals "mourn" their dead. neither of these things are serving a purpose that you suggest. maybe it derives from that instinct to protect life within their group but it goes beyond that.
