Absolutely. This is a fact that people consciously ignore.

Hmm..."Civilization" is defined as:

"1. An advanced state of intellectual, cultural, and material development in human society, marked by progress in the arts and sciences, the extensive use of record-keeping, including writing, and the appearance of complex political and social institutions."

So making things better for ourselves will destroy us? We would all be better off living as the Neanderthals did? What the hell was this guy smoking?


We should look to the past to learn from it, not destroy our future because of it — FounDit

Yeah. The problem is that the human race is in its infancy and thus can’t imagine its end - moreover can’t deal seriously with its problems...
