I agree with the part where humans are cruel... But humans can be taught what is "moral" and "good" and become useful in society. It's the tainted majority who manage to take up office in the higher order. And that's where we get the wonderful wars that have been happening....

So you can't really say it's "all" humans.

Not everyone takes part in it.

Those who do .... They do it for various reasons....

Don't worry... I also wish I wasn't human... I'd rather be a basil leaf.

So don't forget to add the plants as well "Why can't we revert to cucumber branches instead?"

Animals are horrible things too. They eat each other.


Would a destroyed world be so bad? Let's say all humans, and animals were sterilized or killed in a nucleor explosion or something... The plants would die too, since there'd be no carbon dioxide for the plants, and animals would be unable to carry on... only insects capable of surviving radiation would survive, but no carbon dioxide for the plants, so eventually, everything would die.
In fact, maybe that would improve the earth... it'd be quiet. No war, no animals, just roaring waves and sunsets upon a barren, peaceful dirt landscapr.

They say nucleor weapons deter peace... but when you think about it, the weapons are so powerful they prevent war... and if the entire world did get into a nucleor war, then we'd have world peace instantly. Earth would join other peaceful planets like Venus, Mercury, or Saturn? Mars, I'm not sure, they might have life there. And sadly Pluto's not a planet anymore.

Maybe earth is actually the most backwords planet in the solar system.


I think it'd take a bit to have a completely extinct world... Even in some planets, mini little creatures live on it... And since we haven't studied those life forms, we don't know whether they're "cruel" or anything like that... Plants eat other plants, but if there was a plant universe that worked like ours, I highly doubt it'd appreciate how some flora work...

I don't believe that nuclear weapons ONLY deter peace. Everything has a dual purpose. They can instill fear and barricade against the chances of war by a bit. But I think if we ever get any idiots who advocate for control over the Defense of the Nation, they're going to fuck the world up basically....

E.g. "Don't press the red button." Dumbass president has had a fight with his wife and for that slithering hour has felt like shit, decides that he wants to destroy the world in one go...

Boom.

Then we're done.

That isn't world peace, brother... That's the death of humans and the silencing of the planets. What is your definition of peace?

What's your take on cannibalism then?

I think Earth isn't backwards or forward... Haven't really considered that. I neither think our planet is superior than the rest. Just because humans live on it doesn't do anything.

Oh please, no. That would only create more inequality between people in power and the average person, we have enough of that already. We don't need another institution of class differentiation.


Inequality is not wrong equality is. Democracy is a total failure due to the fact the village idiot has the same power as a scientist or some other important profession. Only allow the top 1 percent of intelligent people to breed.

Okay... please objectively define "intelligent people" for me. I hear Adolf Hitler was super intelligent.
Plus, what you described was communism, not democracy... though democracy fails in it's own ways.

We have representative democracy (republic) for a reason.... though it doesn't seem to be working out that way, the goal is supposed to balance the moral concerns of the people, with representatives who are SUPPOSED to be more intelligent than us... You see, they represent our sense of right and wrong, but they also handle the boring political shit no one wants to do, nor are most people capable of.

Of course things aren't looking that way right now... but that's supposed to be the idea

You can't do it... nobody can. Unless you think a high IQ and good grades makes you a good leader... But if you think that, than I must question your own intelligence.

Most people aren't even capable of managing there own affairs so they have to rely on government programs to survive. Not to mention the fact that the majority of the population is not even capable of doing complex academic or scientific work.

Well reasons against are obviously the world would eventually end when everyone grew too old (unless we could develop the technology to stop aging). Also, many people want kids and that's their main goal in life, so not being able to would lead to depression.

It wouldn't be good for the reproduction to stop completely. HOWEVER it would be good if people such as criminals, convicted rapists and peadophiles etc. were not able to reproduce. Only law abiding citizens able to reproduce would be greatly beneficial. Then all kids would be brought up right.

I'm not asking you to agree with my bizarre opinion, since it literally contradicts human nature and the purpose of all of mankind's current achievements in the world...

However, I hate childbirth. I hate the idea, and it's wrong to me... it's wrong to make more people. The more humans we make, the worse life is. Humans are the cruelest creatures in the world and I think we evolved in reverse. We should evolve back into monkeys... I mean apes... whatever...
I wish I was a mad scientist... cause then I'd invent a radioactive field that would neutralize all the sperm on the planet... Every man will shoot blanks from then on...
Then... Man would realize the futility of everything and all war would cease.
And finally, after 100 or so years, we'd all be gone and there'd be peace on earth... We'd hope the next advanced species would do the same....
Plus, baby's are just so annoying... always crying and shit. Humanity would save the world from itself.

Of course the question is simple... If mankind truly is a plague upon the earth, and upon each other, then wouldn't it benefit everyone, even ourselves, if we didn't exist.


Bro, watch 'Children Of Man' its gets to the point you are trying to sell.

Yea, and there are people who can do complex academic work that have no idea how to be a leader, and have no common sense period. I'm not saying stuff like that isn't important, however, academic intelligence is not the only factor in being a strong human being. It doesn't even give you the capability to lead a country or always make rational decisions.
There's more to being intelligent than doing that type of stuff.

And the government relies on us as much as we rely on them... Without our tax dollars it wouldn't exist

Kill off the people and it's like we're running from the mess we've made. Things obviously aren't getting any better under the current circumstances, but simply killing everyone off won't solve much. In the end mankind has left it's mark and it isn't something that is remedied so easily. Instead of just laying down and saying, "screw it, we're doomed" if you really care about the world then you should be out there actually trying to make a tangible difference instead of complaining about it on the internet. Instead of thinking about what's wrong with everything you should be thinking about what you can do to make a real difference and actually work toward it.

No actually. It wouldn't be objectively good for anything if humanity were to go extinct.

Regardless of what people like to think, chaos is the natural state of the world, peace is the aberration. We aren't any more aggressive or war like than a cat, our claws simply deal more damage.

If humanity were to go extinct, it could be millions of years before another organism with the ability to leave the planet comes along. There is also no guarantee that those organisms would be any better than we are now, it's actually more likely that they wouldn't be. The Earth's time is limited whether we kill or the sun does, and the only visible future for any organism from this planet to survive is to leave this planet at some point. If we keep resetting civilization every time we get a bad roll, it's very likely that in the scope of the universe Earth will never amount to anything aside from ashes.

The dinosaurs had their chance. We have ours. No doubt in the future, something else will have its chance. Dolphins, maybe. Apes. Monkeys. Cockroaches. Who knows? Evolution has a strange sense of humor.
