    Default Conservatism & Immortality

    Over time social change takes place because older generations die off so that the younger folks who are more open to new ideas have the (political) power. Now that the baby boomers are starting to reach in age are we going to see a massive shift in political opinion within the next 10-20 years?

    Also, medicine is increasing the human life span incrementally, and our generation might be the first to live regularly more than a century, or even achieve pseudo-immortality. How will societal change occur?

    Look back, this is the comment which pushed me over the edge onto the road of transitioning.

    Its really bizarre in hindsight, but hey, thanks Rayne.

    When I first encountered Rayne, I developed a rather distinct first impression of his character. I still remember it now because of how strange it was - but I knew it was so out there that it couldn't be wrong, as most first impressions usually are. I could tell that someday, somewhere down the line, Rayne would be to blame for someone's sex change. It all makes sense now.
    Well, I open my eyes and I see things. I've seen spirits moving through the walls. I've seen a vortex coming through the wall. I've seen amorphous little balls of light bouncing all around in the front yard through the window. I've seen giant bugs on the floor. I was in a hotel room in Amarillo, Texas, and all I remember is standing on the bed and seeing the whole wall in front of me filled with lights that were [makes popping sound] popping like popcorn out of the wall. Then I'll wake up and I go "Wow, I was standing on my bed and staring at this wall."

    Most opinions on what is and is not moral are changing already. People are growing more tolerant of each other each new generation, and the shift is already starting to occur. Social change will also still happen fairly rapidly well into the future even though there won't be a large new generation to replace the old one. The same technologies that will allow for that will also allow for modification of the mind and people are going to get exponentially smarter.

    I don't know about you but it seems to me that political opinion is already shifting fairly quickly, at least in NYC which is like the political capital of the world. Politicians, and maybe voters, are already embracing marijuana and sexting. There's seems to be a bit more pep in the civil rights movement started by MLKingJr. and his ilk; the supreme court ruled against stop and frisk, etc. Things are looking... up?

    As to your pseudo-immortality: How will it stack up against overpopulation and global warming?
    Just do it.

    Yeah it would only be a crime if he hurt himself because you refused to acknowledge his gender identity.
