The old joke is that we've been developing technology for millennia so that we could watch funny cat videos 24/7. But that's just a joke. Far more serious is the fact that we're using technology developed by civilized people for the benefit of relatively uncivilized people. Making their lives easier and more enjoyable without their having contributed to the creation of the technology. That's bad enough all by itself, but looked at internationally, it also encourages an outrageous population explosion among the least civilized of us. Which, is what the word "unsustainable" actually means, I point out to my liberal friends.

Reminder: this is what America does. it uses unprecedented and unsustainable prosperity to import illegals to slaughter animals and fry their meat so that we can stuff it down African-Americans' throats until they're too fat to walk. America literally trains people in the cutting edge of math, science, finance and management to erect offshore platforms to suck up the carbonized remains of extinct species in order to provide the necessary fuel for the Hispanic/African-American cycle. I guess i never really grasped the goal of civilization before. why did Newton discover calculus? what are Maxwell's equations for? why did Mendeleev deduce the periodic properties of elements? the answer to these and to all questions: to stuff African-Americans with fried meat until they become crippled from overeating, then to provide them with heroic medical care until they gracelessly expire
