    What is your perception on the future of humanity?

    Will we solve our environmental and social problems or will things just get worse?  Will we end up destroying ourselves and the Earth?

    Doomed, due to ignorance and intolerance.  Other than that, I'm optimistic!

    Well, I think it could go either of two ways. We can "get it" and begin working together realizing we have far more in common, and that we are all on this beautiful little planet together. In which case we would put an end to corporate rule, and shut down the Federal Reserve, stopping the march toward one oppressive world government.
    We would get back to sustainable practices and food would be produced locally and seasonally. We would embrace the barter system and place value on the things that really matter which are friends, family, and free time to enjoy them both.

    If we do not choose this path and remain hooked to our television sets, buying the propaganda we are being fed, then it does not look too good for humanity. If we follow this course, then I believe it will be mandatory to find another planet to inhabit and destroy. The wealthy will launch their space arc and start a new civilization on Mars. NASA already has the plans for such an expedition. Robots will be controlled from the moon and will build a city on Mars. Of course all but the richest will be left to perish here on earth suffering the fate created by corporate greed and shortsightedness.

    Outlook dismal. Social problems will be difficult to solve. There are too many people in disagreement because of selfish gains to be had, so no real official organizations are taking anything seriously (example: lethal dependence on foreign oil but a refusal to revert other sources of energy because of the drop in profit that will accompany it; there are two cures for cancer but it would eradicate a $35 billion industry because the alternatives are so cheap, so no one wants to make them standard treatment). We will not likely save our environmental conditions either, we are entirely too dependent on this style of living, which is fine, if you can live with the fact that it will kill future generations of humans who will not be able to reverse natural damages to the planet. The earth, however, will be fine. We cannot destroy Earth, no matter how hard we try. It will eradicate us and most animals because of our abuse, yes, but several thousand or hundred-thousand years from now, the earth will recover from our abuse and be anew. Remember, the earth has been through a whole lot more violent environmental conditions than what we are doing to it. The real question is, will we piss off nature enough for it to destroy us and move on?

    The Perception i have toward the future of humanity is certainty of the truth that humanity will be judge by the creator of all souls.
