    I believe the children are our future. Teach them well and let them lead the way.

    Which future generation are you referring to? The ones who would involve yourself (your children and your grandchildren for example), or the future of humanity itself? Many people would consider the wellbeing of both to be as important, while others do not really consider this at all, rather focusing on the practical issues that are most relevant to themselves at the current moment.

    But in all honesty, this is an easy question to answer - why shouldn't I care about the current state of the world and its environment/resources/social infrastructure/etc? I would still be here in two, or perhaps even three more generations (assuming a generation is about 25-30 years - I aim to live to over 100 years old btw), and I would do my best to educate myself and others to better ourselves for the sake of everything else

    What makes children so deserving? Children are just future adults. I don't even like kids.

    Hell no. I got my ass kicked and suffered the debt to protect them. How much more do they want?

    It's very easy to make people want a better world. Just make them all vampires, you know, cold-blooded creatures that live forever and have to live with the results of global warming policies. All this talk about saving the future generation from crushing debt and yet ignoring the environment will be moot. icon_lol.gif

    Easy answer - Of course
    I believe there has always been the desire to make the world better for future generations. What matters is who's version of 'better' we're using.

    Side note: Ask this again after 12/21/12 Sorta just kidding but not really icon_confused.gif

    The question is irrelevant. When the question is asked "Don't you want to make the world better for future generations?" I would answer "Why should I? What have future generations ever done for me?"

    MuchMoreThanMuscle saidThat depends on how you define a better world. I want to maintain the world and preserve it as much as possible. But not so much for other people, but for the planet itself. If roughly seventy or eighty percent of the world population were to just disappear you would not hear me complaining. In fact, less people = less impact on our planet.

    So many people don't give a shit. It's terrible.


    MMM - Your heart is in the right place, but you have succumbed to the overpopulation myth.

    Depends on who decides what counts as "better". Medieval witch hunters and 19th century eugenicists were forging a better world.

    It's not a myth. You simply have your head up your butt.


    Have you ever considered that it is a myth? Test your assertions and assumptions, and see if they bear scrutiny.

    In fact, we may very well be facing an underpopulation crisis. Have you ever considered that?

    Because they're the ones who are going to take care of our sorry old asses.

    The love of them gives you motivation to create a better tomorrow today, assuming you are a loving person.

    That sounds warm and fuzzy, but it has no real-life application.
