What will say our descendants about us in the future?

When we watch films about the past, we laugh at the naivety and stupidity of a person of that time. But our descendants will look at us with mockery. We don't live the way we want. We act like we're immortal. We live for false goals and betray our dreams.

“People are tormented by the immensity of eternity! And so we ask ourselves: Will the descendants hear about our deeds? Will our names be remembered when we're gone? And will they want to know what we were like, how bravely we fought, how desperately we loved? Troy

Future descendants will laugh at our stupidity and naivety. We live a life in which we are unhappy. We forget about ourselves, chasing false goals. What will the abstract of an ordinary schoolboy from the future look like? What will our descendants say about us and how can you use it?

“An essay on the life of our distant descendants from the 21st century according to the Gregorian calendar”

1. People of the past were physically imperfect

People killed themselves. They ate junk food called "fast food" and other unhealthy foods. They did not take care of their appearance and health. Few of the people of the past had an athletic and good figure. Most of the people were fat, thin and weak. They didn't go to the gym! As a result, they were not athletic and beautiful.

People of the past did not take care of their body, but exhausted it with bad habits of that time: "alcohol", "cigarettes" and other things.

2. People of the past were short-sighted and stupid

Many people did not do what they wanted at all. They were chasing material goods called "money" and engaged in "consumption." The accumulation of a large number of things and new technology was considered a sign of "well-being". They thought it would make them happy. How strange they are.

People of the past spent all their time, health and energy in order to be "rich". They did not do what they dreamed of. People of the past did not try to fulfill their dreams, but betrayed them or forgot them.

By old age, many people became those who had “money”. But by then they were getting old, missing out on all their lives and opportunities. They were "wealthy", but already old and unhappy.

3. The people of the past were limited

The interests of the people of the past ended in consumption and entertainment. They didn't have big goals. They did not absorb information and did not engage in education, preferring to live in their own limited world. People of the past polluted the world, participated in "wars", "killed" each other, were interested in "politics" and "religion".

The people of the past were limited. They rejected thoughts, ideas and desires if they went against society. People have limited themselves and prevented others from growing. The people of the past traveled little, were afraid to love, were not drawn to the new, did not help each other and did not make the world a better place. They were stupid savages.

Conclusions about people of the past XXI century:

People of the past were very primitive and limited. People of the past lived very little, did not play sports and killed themselves. People of the past spent time and energy on things that no one needed. People of the past spent their whole lives chasing wrong goals.

The people of the past did not try to fulfill their dreams and make the world a better place.
