this documentary covers a theme i’ve thought about for a while: at what point do we stop and say we’re happy with our lives and our technological progress? the answer, of course, is never. which raise the issue of us outpacing our evolution with our technological abilities. if we were a highly intelligent and rational race then our prospects of survival would look good in spite of the military weaponry we possess and the numbers of people we have living off a finite number of resources on this planet. unfortunately, we’re essentially still apes, but with much more powerful toys. they talk about progress traps, population and china. basically, we’re screwed.
