Where will the human race end up in the far, or not so far future?
Everyone has their own set of theories or fears, but they essentially all break down into one of five scenarios.
Scenario 1: Mankind destroys itself. This is the one most feared by left-wingers. This is when mankind wipes itself out because of massive environmental damage it does to the planet, or because of a nuclear war, or other existential threat. I would also place an extinction event caused by an asteroid or meteor hitting the earth in this category, even though it’s not technically mankind’s fault. However, it could be argued that death-by-asteroid would be our fault, since I’m pretty sure we have the technology to be forewarned and prevent such a catastrophe. This means that if the asteroid does hit us and we all die, it’s because we didn’t get our act together in preventing it when we could have.
