If you go through life with a fatalist mindset of "lol we're screwed anyway", nothing you say, nothing you do, none of it matters. Why even have dreams, why even do things, why even think of the future, when there is no future?

Try to find a little something in your heart to be optimistic about. Build things, create things, allow yourself to dream of your own little paradise on God's green earth, then set out to find it and spend your life there. Anyone who has ever traveled beyond their home town will tell you this earth has some beautiful places. Go find those places. Most of the time, it is our own defeatism that screws us.

We should not blame "the world", culture, women, society, religion, for our woes. We should blame only ourselves. We are our own greatest enemy and we are our own finest solution. All we need to do is get off our asses and visit good places, meet good people, and all of a sudden the world seems a lot less screwed.

Bro, stop trolling. You're not even a follower of Christ and you start with this nonsense. Shut up and stop trolling. You worship the decadent western lifestyle. When all that crumbles, you won't have anyone to turn to. Blame yourself for not having a healthy, sane culture.

Russia and other Orthodox Christian countries have some hope. Orthodox Judaism and traditional Anabaptist sects will survive. And my little religion has some tiny chance, see my signature.

Yaa Mr. Darcy I feel for the younger generation coming up. You all have been screwed big time. The youth world wide need to have a conscience awakening and say enough is enough, it has been said the teachers will appear when the people are ready.

The current group of youth in my college town leave me little hope however, this civilization America is becoming dumber and dumber and that is what the ruling elite want so the next generations can be managed like cattle on a spread sheet.

The ecological disaster unfolding world wide is the real story concerning the long term future of humanity and the masses are incoherent to this fact so yaa it's all going down the tubes on your watch. You all have been and are being handed a complete mess.

I would not want to be a young man today at all because if you decide to plant a garden here more than likely the outcome for your fruit will be horrific. Don't mean to be negative but mother nature is a brutal opponent.

I think Carlin said it best:

(I'm paraphrasing)

"The world will be fine. The world's not going anywhere...WE ARE!"

George Carlin. Sigh. The universe always takes the bright ones early and leaves the chaff to us.
