for every reason you just posted, why would 2050 be better than 2030?
Because another generation of the products of the current (or near future)
system will suddenly want better for their own children?
The indoctrination system we call education prepares young minds to be the
kind of consumers that drive the status quo around stasis. Those few who
see it for what it is usually rise into positions of power and comfort where
they can maintain that power and comfort by keeping things as they are.
Change implies risk. Those capable of introducing change have the most to
lose. Is there enough extropian influence to overcome this inertia?
