Where do I start?

The day to day functioning of our society (in the U.S., specifically) is extremely dependent on readily available and cheap oil; without our assorted petrol products, things would rapidly grind to a halt.  Because of this, we're violating the sovereignty of other countries so that, at the end of the day, our fundamentally unsustainable way of life can stretch on for just a little bit longer.  No one in power or currently vying for such seems remotely concerned by said unsustainability—most of them seem to think, like everyone else, that oil will never ever run out.

Similarly, despite the widely-applauded international climate agreement reached by world leaders in the recent past—the applause and praise for which smells more like wishful thinking than anything else, to say nothing of the actual guidelines of the agreement itself—the coal and oil industries responsible for the carbon emissions are no less thoroughly entrenched in our government's policy-making apparatuses than before.  For that matter, even the most trivial of bills can scarcely scrape through our legislative branch due to the political polarization of our politicians; how in the world does anyone expect something as significant as regulations on big industries to make it through without being gutted?

That's making no mention of the hopelessly malformed electoral system in and of itself.  A potential politician has to be able to cough up millions of dollars to make any sort of serious attempt at a campaign, a sum nigh impossible to accumulate through the donations of constituents.  Thus, they must seek funding from the super-wealthy, which consequently means that they'll enact policies that said benefactors wish to see rather than those helpful to the citizens they allegedly represent—after all, that re-election campaign will rear its head a lot sooner than they think, and they wouldn't want to upset their source of funding and risk losing their cushy job.

We're slowly reverting back to working conditions comparable to the Gilded Age:  Employees being expected to work 50, 60, 70+ hours a week on a regular basis without appropriate compensation—and without any labor unions in most areas, strikes to improve conditions are functionally impossible; business owners accruing monumental sums of wealth while the bulk of their workers make less than living wages (and many of whom must work multiple such jobs just to make ends meet).  And that's just in the United States—I daresay I don't need to comment on the factories in East Asia where conditions are poor enough such that nets are placed outside of the building to keep workers from attempting suicide.

As has been mentioned several times already earlier in this thread, the so-called "social justice warriors" and outrage culture in general are often outright toxic.  These groups are so quick to crucify a person for said person's misdeeds and prejudices that they sometimes forget to check if that person ever said something offensive at all.  The careers and even the lives of these targeted individuals take a back seat to the personal vendettas and inflamed sense of justice of these "warriors"—you'd better hope that you don't touch the wrong person's nerve or cause a particularly sensitive misunderstanding, lest you find yourself out of a job, if not altogether ostracized by society.

I could go on, but this post has gotten long enough.

TL;DR:  Everything is terrible.

Les jeux sont faits. Nous sommes fucked.

it's wrong to hate people that are part of the group but don't actually hold these views.

if youre part of the group that hold those views, you are supporting them. Also, show me a non american muslim/islamist that doesn't hold those views.

"Political correctness".
It's a method of controlling thought by exploiting shame with the goal of intimidating people who don't have the "correct" beliefs. It's exactly the kind of double speak Orwell warned people about. 
People view it as an annoyance without realizing how harmful it actually is.


Edit: Didn't want to double post

Children are incredibly easy to manipulate, so people see any sexual contact between a child and an adult as fundamentally exploitative. The thought that someone  else might trick your child into sex gets emotions flaring. I can't really explain why it's so extreme, but that's at least the basis of it.

Education in the United States is a complete farce and there's dozens of complicated and interconnected issues as to why.  The US is failing it's youth.

Hedonism is fine so long as it's practiced in moderation. Of course, if someone lived a life defined by their adherence to this philosophy, they'd probably end up being a useless waste of space that actively rejects and ridicules the norms of the modern world in favor of crafting an existence that allows them to remain within their ever-shrinking comfort zone as long as possible. 

As for me, I'm kinda tired of how petty politics have been getting; at least in the US. Political polarization being what it is, you've got the Republicans constantly checking the Democrats and the Democrats constantly checking the Republicans, thus ensuring that nothing meaningful gets done. That is unless it pleases the lobbyists, in which case they're more than happy to collaborate in denouncing Net Neutrality, enacting incredibly intricate surveillance programs, and constantly advocating for loosened regulations. I mean we don't really need OSHA or the EPA, right? Corporation can take care of themselves, right?

And what of the far-left and far-right? Well, using tumblr and /pol/ as samples of both, respectively, they seem to be more concerned with identity politics and popular figureheads than anything else. Rather than strive for comprehensive social welfare programs, the far-left bickers endlessly about oppression and demonizes police officers. On the right, more concern is given to banishing immigrants and repealing regulations than building a strong economy and promoting national unity. All the while, the environment and climate change are either wholly ignored or ridiculed as pseudoscience.

I understand that people tend only to discuss those issues that are in vogue, but doesn't anyone know what they're supposed to be fighting for?

Those aren't the kinds of regulations that are seen as being problematic. For instance, the reason the US has terrible ISPs is due in large part to the fact that there's a ton of regulations holding you back from even laying the first wire. 
http://www.wired.com/2013/07/we-need-to-...mpetition/
This is also why Walmart wants to see minimum wage go up. They can afford to pay people doing no-skill labor the extra money, while smaller regional and local stores would be hurt or even put out of business. 
For a real world anecdote, my company was supposed to have already opened a new store in a nearby city, but we've apparently been having legal issues with Walmart, whom we have to pay to own the land anyway (???) because of some regulation Walmart managed to get passed in that city. We also were supposed to have repaired the parking lot at our distribution center for our semi-trailers, but the city is imposing new zoning standards which require stores to build terraces between the road and the parking lot, which would require an absurd amount of money compared to just repairing the parking lot itself, money which we currently don't have. I'm assuming the new rules were designed to make the city look less trashy, but all it's doing it making it so businesses put off repairing parking lots for as long as possible. 
You should also remember that the entire job of a lobbyist is to get new laws and regulations passed which helps the person/company/group they represent.

Here's a great article I found on how regulations can, have been, and often are bad.

That's why I was kinda confused.

>>42847
But is identity politics really the same as hedonism?
I mean, to be sure the current issues with the authoritarian right VS the PC left represent a malignant cancer consuming the american political landscape, but it's not really hedonism at all, more a neo-tribalism that's taken shape; wherein pundits are more concerned with the team they're playing for than the actual issues, congregating in these gigantic echo chambers that reinforce and radicalize popular ideas while drowning out silencing dissent.  In some cases to the point of suicide if Tumblr's any metric to go by.

Domestic violence. The act of causing physical harm to someone you're supposed to love and cherish. The person you're supposed to protect. I can't possibly imagine living with myself knowing that I hurt the person I love - being forever alone is a more appealing prospect.

The criminal stigma of drugs in our society. Vices Are Not Crimes - Lysander Spooner.

Corruption of government in our society. Private bankers own the world. EX The Federal Reserve.

The deception and promotion of ignorance in our society. EX Mass Media (which in america 90% of is owned by only 6 different corporations), The DARK act, etc.

The state manipulated racial division in our society. Divide and Conquer.

The good ol' War on Drugs here in the US. Legalize weed, it's a recreational drug that is effectively less toxic on society than alcohol. Look into helping and rehabilitating repeated offenders of harder drugs (Meth, Heroin, Cocaine, etc), instead of locking them up in a volatile prison environment.

For-Profit Prison System. Hitting on this because it makes the idea of helping and rehabilitating people a mere dream. With prisons needing to meet quotas just so they keep their cash machine working. It's bullshit. Instead of funding for-profit prisons states should create and maintain their own, while taking funding from the war on drugs and for-profit prisons to help rehabilitate people.

I have now tried for several minutes to begin a reply and specify one mark on society that we should improve on. I could not seem to come down to one problem but several.
Of course saying that, it will definitely include politics, power and religion.

But all of those three are marks that will never change no matter how much you pressure it.
I can't be the person to specify one problem nor several, I would rather suggest we discover them before focusing on wide subbed themes.

Now, trying to define yourself is like trying to bite your own teeth, but if you try and define society you will see and discover numberous things that are bad and good such as violence, abuse of drugs and so on.

But from a strictly scientific point of view there really is nothing wrong with the world. It is just how people see it and keep doing it after generations.

Let us make a scenario then, ok?

Let us say 5 monkeys were in a cave, the cave was empty and had one banana in the top of a ladder. The first monkey that went up to grab the banana wanted it for just well basic reasons of selfishness which is basic and common sense. The other monkey however were watered with cold water making them hurt in a phsical and mental way.
Then when the monkey went down he got dragged into a shame way of society that surrounded him considering the brain that the monkey had as they were calculating whether what his actions did made an effect towards the other ones.

Next day another monkey goes for the banana and the same happens, he gets the banana but is beaten when he comes down as the others are making a mark stating that if he climbs the latter to achieve a banana he will cause others harm. Now he understood that.

So it went on till the last and every monkey knew going up on the ladder is basically causing them trouble. The scientists changed their strategy by going by generation and tradition. Each 3 days the changed one of the older monkies that had been there and abused another monkey. While changing monkies the new ones adapted to the tradition of beating up every person going up the ladder. This went on and at the end there was only "new" monkies left knowing that if you climb the ladder you will get beaten.
While at the same time every other monkey in there that was also "new" knew that they had to beat up their friend going up the ladder but they had no idea why BECAUSE no new monkey tried to climb and as a result there were no more actions towards the "new" monkies as they had just adapted from their previous generation.


It is weird how society adapts to laws and rules and obeys them but nobody can really strictly say "why" it would be followed such as judgement.
Too much trouble considering society.

First step is to get to know your own boundaries and know that you have a limited time and be okey with death and so on and forget that it is "painful" because it is not painful, it is the society around you that you have adapted to, that has said that it hurts to lose someone. To lose someone hurts for you and you only considering your own pain.

Oh god I went off-topic there for a second so excuse me.

Work on ourselves a bit before we judge the society but if I was to mark down one thing strictly

It would be by long shot , globalwarming.

Now excuse me for my philosophical stands.

First of all; sorry for my bad english

>>46017
If I have learned something from maths is that only formal proofs are objetive. Everything that is not a proof is subjetive, and that includes every single post on this thread (this one included oc). I have readed the whole thread and it has a miriad of diferent subjetive opinions. So, I totally agree with you in the point that to judge the world, we must first knew ourselves very well.

Here's what concerns me:

Spain's current political situation
Migration crisis from an economic perspective
Rising of extreme political ideologies
Political correctness and SJWs
Third wave feminism
Education
Lack of science funding
Labor intrusion in CS (Is not the same to program than to develop software)
Politicization of sexual freedom (LGBTwhatever)

You guys ever been by Englewood? South side of Chicago? I have. Lived there. Not for long, but I lived there.

It's a catastrophe. First, all the jobs move to the suburbs because land's cheaper there. Suddenly, half the neighborhood's lost their jobs. Sure, there's still other jobs to take, but they pay minimum wage. You can't feed your kids on minimum wage. You check in with DHS and get on welfare. Or maybe you don't. Maybe you do some hustling on the side; move some guns, sell some drugs, make some good money. It's all illegal, of course, and the black market is competetive, but you can afford to live. The neighborhood goes to shit. Everyone who can afford to moves out because there's gangs on every corner. Property values drop. Property values plummet. Half the homes around you are boarded up, and the city government won't pay to fix your fucking sidewalks because you don't pay enough property taxes. Jobs start to dry up even more because there's fewer people living there. Nobody wants to invest, either. And can you blame them? Soon enough the gangs are about the only way to make good money, so damn near everyone's in them. The police crack down; they start to get rid of the gangs, alright, but in the process they're gutting the community. Soon enough, so many buildings are abandoned that there's an entire cottage industry dedicated to stripping delapidated structures of their scrap metal.

That's Englewood. It's that part of the greatest city in America that America abandoned and left to rot. It all happened in a couple generations. The only reason that anyone still lives there is because of the welfare system. Of course, they could get rid of it altogether and clear Englewood out in a matter of years, but that means people starve, get sent out on the streets, that there's even more crime.

You can't do anything about Englewood. Can't fix it, can't let it die.

I knew some guys there. Some good people. In distant memories, Englewood was fucking beautiful. It pisses me off that such a beautiful place turned into such a horrible one.

It pisses me off that we use a system where such a thing would even be possible.

thank you for reading <3

Of course, they could get rid of it altogether and clear Englewood out in a matter of years, but that means people starve, get sent out on the streets, that there's even more crime.

You can't do anything about Englewood. Can't fix it, can't let it die.

I knew some guys there. Some good people. In distant memories, Englewood was fucking beautiful. It pisses me off that such a beautiful place turned into such a horrible one.

It pisses me off that we use a system where such a thing would even be possible.

And this is what happens when companies put profits ahead of people. Good job, capitalism.

You're over talking about how we rely too much on oil and I'm just thinking that society's worst problem is shit like the dab
Everytime I see that I want to die.

I can't stand how people are obessed with things that ultimately mean absolutely nothing in life.

People dedicate so much time to being spiteful and unambitious instead of exploring the wonders of the world.

Nobody really cares about being innovative, creative, or just helping the progression of humanity.

Today a man announced his plan to send humans to Mars within the next few decades, but very few care. Everyone is too busy creating Trump memes or sending stupid pictures via Snapchat.

The way people treat other people and strangers. Just because I can't lift a 100 pound bookshelf to your car alone doesn't make me a "little bitch" and I shouldn't be fired just because you can't be half-assed to help me.

He has no style. He has no grace. This Kong has a funny face.
