American public opinion pollsters ask Americans a question on a regular basis. The question is “Is America moving in the right direction, or is it on the wrong track?” This poll is conducted for other countries as well. The respondents don’t give the reasons for their answer. Therefore, this poll doesn’t investigate the accuracy of the facts behind the response. This poll doesn’t measure the logic people employ (or the lack thereof). It asks for a very general perception or feeling about the direction of the country.
Humanity: right direction or wrong track?
I request that anyone who reads these words imagine something with me. Imagine that a public opinion pollster contacted you. But instead of asking you about your country, they asked you about humanity. What if they asked, “Is humanity moving in the right direction, or is it on the wrong track?” I have posed this question to some people in my world. Some of them have responded with bewilderment. Some have asked, “What metric are you using?” I consider that a reasonable question. One way this question might be framed is, “Is humanity becoming more capable or less capable to face challenges and take advantage of opportunities?”
Humanity: right direction or wrong track? Luke Muehlhauser created the above graph in an attempt to identify the most impactful event in human history. He offers a one-sentence summary of human history, “Everything was awful for a very long time, and then the industrial revolution happened.” Muehlhauser’s article suggests that he considers humanity to be moving in the right direction.
Humanity: right direction or wrong track? A group of eight scientists generated the above image. They titled their paper “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice.” 15,364 scientists added their names to this paper in the month since it was published. I could go into detail about the data being presented here. But it is abundantly clear that the authors of this paper believe humanity is on the wrong track.
Humanity: right direction or wrong track? The New Message from God has something to say on this subject. I don’t want to just say that the New Message from God says humanity is on the wrong track. It’s more nuanced than that. After the Industrial Revolution, humanity started consuming many more resources, and having a much greater impact on its environment. This is from the revelation “The Race to Save Human Civilization,” received in 2009:
“Humanity has plundered the world and has destroyed your natural inheritance to such a great degree that the world will change now, becoming a more difficult place for the human family.”
Humanity: right direction or wrong track? I say humanity faces difficult times ahead, as a consequence of its recent success. If I had to say right direction or wrong track, I would say wrong track. But there’s more to it than that.
