Kind of funny, over the past two years I have been finding myself saying exactly the words "fuck this gay earth" more and more throughout my day to day interactions with other humans and while skimming current events. Maybe I live in an echo chamber in a shitty part of the country but I feel like healthy societal growth and authentic learning and exploration are dead. I'm sure every generation has felt this way about their current time though. Bumping for hope

They had some odd ideas (for us today) back then with Star Wars. Lightfoils are rarely mention in the lore anymore. Not to mention that almost all of the original SW's arts looks really retro now.

50's - Those damn greasers are runnin' around with their rock music and tight jeans, corruptin' our morals while the Commies infiltrate every corner of our society. I'm sure my neighbor's workin' for the Reds. I can feel it. We're all gonna drown in nuclear fire any day now. Fuck this gay Earth.

60's - Those damn niggers are runnin' around using the same schools and water fountains as the rest of us, tryin' to seduce our daughters and corruptin' our morals, while the Commies infiltrate every corner of our society. My sons have both died in Vietnam and my daughter is fuckin' a mulatto high on acid in a VW Bus. Fuck this gay Earth.

70's - Those damn faggots are runnin' around with their disco music and their faggot orgy bars, corruptin' our morals and trying to seduce our sons and daughters to be queer, now that the Commies are hidin' in every hold and corner of our society. And now some little pussy is telling me my car is bad for the "ozone" and that eating meat is bad for the sky or some shit. Aw hell, Nixon just resigned. Fuck this gay Earth.

80's - Those damn faggots, niggers, and Commies are runnin' around with their cocaine and their AIDS and their hair band music and their hip-hop, corruptin' our morals, while the Reds have gotten the most aggressive they've been in years and brought back a fear of nuclear annhilation I haven't felt since the 50's. People are screaming about the polar bears melting or some shit, and now I'm being told my grandpa's Thompson he used to storm Guadalcanal is now illegal because it's full-auto. Fuck this gay Earth.

I'd love to see humanity colonizing the solar system , cheap fusion, flying cars, and all that.
I remember when Clarke and vonBraun predicted satellites would make secret military operations impossible and, therefore, war would become obsolete.
Comsats would undermine dictatorial regimes.
This is NOT the 21st century I was anticipating.

But I think you picked an odd image to illustrate such a bright future. Showing the world being swallowed by an urban cancer is more like a nightmare.

Space travel was for nobody except who could buy a seat from Putin about 5 years ago. SpaceX has made such amazing progress that it's hard to gain perspective on it. And the best part is that starship is going to dramatically improve our capabilities even further.

With this thread I could get writing about space civilisations, trips into the vast space, crews going through generations just to make it through a single trip, or maybe not, utilising some wormhole.
But I can very quickly see anything turning into... humanity. Corruption, the disgusting stuff the world is made of right now.

This future is too good to ever become true. At least for everybody.

At least for Moon and Mars bases, there's the SpaceX and Artemis missions.
Future is coming slower than we thought, but it surely is coming.
And now that oil companies are starting to be seen for what they really are, they hopefully won't be able to block fusion research for much longer.

dyed hair freaks who can't even acknowledge the genitals they were born with. a supreme court nominee who was picked, by admission of the president and repeatedly, proudly, stated it, for being a black women AND he will only pick black women for the "job," who could not give the definition of what a women is during her own hearing. instead of space travel and an amazing future, all we got is the modern equivalent of the fall of rome and the weimar republic.

While you always will have people who complain, you also had people who were hopeful and for good reasons. Good things were actually happening and unlike today, imagining that 50 years in the future our current problems would be gone and we would live in some new age was expected.

Notice how actually no one now has some sense of the future like they had before. The best thing you can find it's like Black Mirror, which is "NOW" but on steroids. When you think about it, it's kinda has been going on at least since the 90s. Matrix too is basically "NOW" but on steroids. People forced to live meaningless and boring lives to power some huge machine.

I hope sometime in the near future we can return from this boring bureaucracy world, back to the one where we had crazy dreams and actually realized them.
