In the future (say 50 years time) how will history books describe the present day? What will be the defining points of our era and how will they shape the way people look back on them?
I think globalisation will be the main focus. Global capitalism, travel, trade etc
What about other events? For example, do you think the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq will be conidered a 'success'? Will Health improve in the next 50 years? What do you think the West will be like in 50 years time?
Hopefully history will see this era as utterly ****ing retarded because;
a) The masses (who are stupid) elect people who they like (thus also stupid) to run countries. Because that isn't going to backfire
b) The economy is based around infinite growth. Newsflash - that is not physically possible and has to end at some point.
