I don't think we're all doomed but there are two very frightening trends. There are fewer and fewer people willing to think for themselves and it's looking increasingly like world leaders might no longer have the best interests of humanity as their guiding principle. If neither of these things change then the next half century could be bleak as there are no longer sufficient resources to support population.
I pray I'm wrong.
