Star Trek says we’ve got a few solid decades of unprecedented war and genocide before first contact.

That feel when you’re not one of Khan’s supermen in exile on the S.S. Botany Bay. Bad ends everywhere.
Honestly, I can’t figure out which one is worse!

If you can’t figure out which is worse, that’s on you.

How do you reckon? You preface your statement with the word “honestly”, which would seem to imply that you’re not being sarcastic, but it seems like a flippant and sarcastic statement nevertheless.

Ah, it’s like meta-sarcasm, or something.
If they had shown a Millenium Falcon, I would say, “Yes, we are definitely not living up to a worthwhile goal.”
Instead, they showed us the Starship Enterprise: an emblem of the most dull, sterile, desiccated vision of the future in all of the 20th century.
If NRx’s goal is to make even space travel boring, then count me out. I’d rather be going buck-wild with Omar and Adnan over there in Europe.

I’m with Heidegger – at least the Jihadis know we’re an earth-borne species.
Erebus Reply:January 22nd, 2015 at 5:19 am
The older he got, the more Heidegger stressed a need for rootedness, for a connection to the Earth and a small sense of place… To my mind, this is yet another reason to disdain him.

heideggers perspective was eminently suitable for his audience, in the majority of humanity (including himself). it is so much for the better when those with lower world formation capacity do not concern themselves beyond the more parochial. autists long on ideology and short on imagination is where revolutions come from.
