Default What's truly going on in the world ?

Why are the people in the world going mad? Technology perhaps? What do you think?

The dumb people are breeding at a far greater rate than the smart people.

Glad my generation was not any further in the future. Although if we make it, living on another planet would be kinda neat maybe.

The world is getting crowded - 7.35 billion people and 51.4 million increase in population this year.

The more crowded it gets, the more "mad" some people get.

people need space.

People don't need technology to excuse their madness, it's been there a long time

The Spanish Inquisition
The Crusades

Wrong forum.

But to answer your question, you should read a history book some time. Things are much better now than at any point in the past.

People read stuff on internet and think it applies to everyone and changes everything.

Yes, it's technology. Going mad is synonymous with going insane. The definition of insanity, is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.

So if you reboot your computer multiple times expecting a fix. You're insane. And there's technology involved.

Pick any decade since dawn of history and I'll show you one way more screwed up than today. I think people just have more time on their hands plus the Internet makes them think it's all coming to an end.

I for one would not trade today for any other time. Ever.

Cognitive dissonance caused by ongoing problems with "high-quality" Yamaha outboards.

(Hey, it's posted in the boating forum. So I figure that's what he's asking about.)

Yup. People forget (or ignore or change to what they want it to be) history way too often.

But, after the 15th reboot, you switch to a 12# sledge hammer, you're no longer insane, just lacking in "impulse control", a personality disorder rather than a psychosis. So you're good to go on a NICS check when trying to buy an AR-15 and 1000 rounds, then a movie ticket.
