No I’m not catastrophising.

The world is slowly lurching towards a fully fascist led America, India, Hungary, Russia, Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Argentina.

Instead people are either ignorant or blaming “wokeism”* for their problems.

I have no clue what to do and this is literally a car crash in slow motion.

I’m despondent because I’m going to be crushed under the boot when the time comes and my morals get in the way of my survival instinct.

Humans are repeating the mistakes of the past. It’s just so anxiety inducing.

*Woke is a useless term promulgated by fascists to dog whistle the things they really want to hate - feminism, socialism, LGBTQIA+, immigration, brown/black people, equality and diversity.

    I hate thinking so negatively about the future but the more the world seems to crumble around me the more I feel like we might be one of the last generations of humans that got to experience civilisation for a long time.

    The planet is dying, fascism is spreading, the tensions are rising, and everyone has nukes! woo! future!

      You forgot to mention end stage capitalism to further enrich the 1% and corporations.

        that’s part of the “planet is dying” bit, since nobody who can do something about it is doing anything

      On the positive side a world ravaged by nuclear war could solve both problems!

      Yay.

          TIL. The Federation already exists. We just aren’t communist enough to get the immortality beam and reality bomb engine.

            Weelll except for the nuclear first-use policy.

            Although all in all that’d sort of track, too
