I could not imagine bringing a kid into this world right now. Yes, the world's been screwed up for a long time, and this sentiment is not new. But everything's come to a head this year, and the future for future generations seems dimmer than ever.

Kids today will be nailed with climate change tomorrow. Rising sea levels, super storms, heat waves, disease not seen in Canada due to the warmer climate and AI/robotics taking jobs. It's going to get wild. I'm glad my days are numbered.

Unfortunately the planet is already over populationed. We will not be able to feed all the people on the planet going forward, even.
The pandemic seems to be helping with this delema.
How convenient.
Plus we are running out of healthy ground in which to sow our food.
Why do you think beef is on the decline ?
Takes a lot of land and resourses to raise cattle. $$$$
Poisoned the soil with pesticides.
Its a mess man.

I've been saying this for about 10 years now, I could see things on going down a one way street. It's not going to get better, its just not. Sad but true. Happy to be a DINK for the next 20 years. Just wish there were more of us around.

I agree with you

Things do seem bleaker than ever before although I was not alive during world War II, pretty dark times back in the 1940's.
But today's world condition actually feels like "end of days".
The rioting in the US is just the latest in a constant downward spiral.

This is the best time ever from some angles. Wars are low. Concern for human rights is written into the laws of most countries. Cellphone cameras document and expose racism that would have been easily covered up.

Times were always tough. Someone’s good old days was another’s dystopian nightmare.

Yeah totally

You’ll be the first one responsible for humanity to die out! It’s always been like this and even worse

Having just turned the big 4-0 and still don't have a woman to share my life, let alone start a family with, I'm resigned to being single, lonely and childless for the rest of my life, seeing that everyone else in my age group is happily married, settled down and have started a family of their own.

There are a great many reasons for my miserable predicament: born and raised in an uncaring and unloving family who criticized me non-stop, repeatedly told me that I can never do anything right and won’t amount to anything, and constantly demanded that I put their needs before my own; ongoing self-esteem issues, social awkwardness, always feeling out of place, uncomfortable with who I am and painfully ashamed of what I have become as a person; struggled for my whole life with meeting people and making friends; "wrong" ethnic background; lacking fundamental, generally-accepted masculine behaviours, attitudes, strengths and mannerisms; considered by members of Western society to be weak and lacking anything meaningful and useful to bring to the proverbial table -- the list goes on. The only romantic attention I've ever gotten from anyone are cougars, gay men, and other women who seek to take advantage of me. Yet, my mother, who considers me to be a failure and disappointment in the family, has the nerve to continue demanding that I marry a woman, in the same ethnic background no less (interracial relationships is a concept that she adamantly rejects), and provide her with grandchildren.

And now, with destructive climate change racing to the point of no return; a global pandemic which is spreading across the world unchecked and gradually wiping out mankind; and global conflict caused by reckless, self-serving, racist and irrational world leaders... it is undoubtedly the worst possible time in the history of humanity to be bringing more members of our species into this already overpopulated planet. At least I provide an easy and convenient reason not to further worsen the situation: no reasonable woman will want to produce offspring with an ugly, miserable, self-hating and damaged excuse of a male such as myself.
