So, I've been watching a ton of Star Trek, and it makes me think, what the fuck happened? What happened to that spirit of hope and optimism we used to have? The desire to continue existing, and exploring? It seems like all I see these days is pessimism. "HURR DE DURR HUMAN EXTINCTION BY 2100." Like, come on. Are you telling me you're just going to give up? Roll over and die? Frankly, I feel like the whole "WE'RE NOT GONNA BE AROUND IN X YEARS!" is a pretty selfish attitude. Burden future generations with debt to get what YOU want now, because fuck them, right?
That attitude is often accompanied by people with this played out, Agent Smith attitude about humans being a virus or some shit. In my experience, people who espouse this attitude are usually pretty shitty, neurotic people who can't seem to get their life together.
