    Let's a trip back through history, who accomplished the most for Earth so far. It was those old fogies back then that got the engine running. We have stopped the engine and it's about to explode. :icon_lol: Our gen is the instant replay, update with a new paint job and call it hi tech. I mean maybe there is a certain balance that needs to be achieved. All those big cities are not well thought out in terms of design, safety, ability to house all the inhabitants as well as some people that choose to live a life in nature. They can update a few things but first you have to control births in order to maximize the potential of any populace. Look at the Mayans, Romans, guys like Tesla who have a bit of old and new to accomplish a perfect balance. our gen is pure garbage compared to there contributions because we are living off there ideas instead of expanding and evolving into a better thinking populace.

    Deserves Got Nothing To Do With It, Unfortunately
    More divorce, suicide, addiction, (show me the stats on less violent crime, I live in a HOA and got a drive by having 9 shots unloaded into the house), more exploitation of the masses, bigger rift between the haves and have nots, less ozone, destroying species, loss of the nuclear family, mass killings, serial killers, genocides, etc.

    Because clearly your anecdotal evidence trumps the data:

    From a study by Manuel Eisner from Cambridge University.

    Pretty much everything you mentioned has been an issue for a while now other than the ozone issue and the "loss of the nuclear family."

    I don't see this as a universal negative.
    I don't have figures for these, but do you really believe mental health treatments are inferior now, and public opinion less supportive than in the past? As for addiction, in the 19th century you used to be able to buy cocaine, opium and heroin over the counter.
    The book I mentioned has more stats on that than you could ever wish for. Here is a PDF version.
    Slavery, workhouses, indentured servitude, serfdom, complete lack of workers rights, no collective bargaining, no minium wage, near universal child labour, mass taxation without benefit...
    For recent history, I agree, over the whole span of history? I doubt it.
    Last I read the ozone layer was repairing itself following the restrictions on CFCs.
    Not a new problem, albeit one that has increased (the idea of pre-civilised, tribal people living in harmony with nature is just an offshoot of the noble savage myth). Conversely, animals now have legal protection, with a great deal of effort being put into the preserving of species, a idea which would have seemed ridiculous throughout much of human history.
    Even if this were true, I'd say it was worth loosing fro the other benefits modernity has brought.
    These are not new, and have also decreased. Again, I refer you to the above book.

    Children of that tribe would be raised as children of that tribe and give zero shits or fucks about this magical empowerment you speak of. Do you want someone taking your children because they feel you're not 'educated' enough to raise them?

    So-called modern education and society isn't what it's cracked up to be. Modern society is full of people that think they know better, but even they can't agree on what that 'better' is.

    You're not a better person because you can quote some facts or make more money or are more 'educated' by your standards.

    I don't think these tribes care about going to ivy league schools, owning real estate or having a 401k.

    Take the kids away for their benefit, hey, just like the Canadians did for the First Nations. Worked well for them, right?

    The Aussies did something similar, trying to breed the blackness out of the Aborigines by taking them away from their families and putting them with whites. Officially that ended in 1969, but the Victorian government continued until at least 1976.

    I'll bet you those savages don't even have universal healthcare. The lack of access to free abortions for the women makes this a women's rights issue. I think we need to invade.

    That sounds like a pretty good idea for a reality TV show.

    Send 1000 Humanities professors and graduates to the island and see if they can educate the 200 Sentinelese tribesmen about humans rights, the rule of law, modern enlightenment and the moral arguments against murder, before they are killed and their heads put on stakes on the beach to warn off other invaders.
