    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?

    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.

    'social change' is a horribly vague term. and 'shifts in political opinion' is an abstract idea. political opinion is cyclical - as we see a trend towards globalisation and authoritarianism, obviously some form of counterbalance comes in terms of a 'shift of political opinion' of this generation. yet i guarantee you that in twenty years people, probably young people, will start becoming inclined towards institutions that they initially rejected in favour of social change - so people will begin to join churches and right-wing parties again. the world is an endlessly untranscendable cycle of human folly and nothing happens or organically changes without some kind of mass cataclysmic revolution, and the idea that it does is barbaric
