Ok this poll is abit more political. Do you think that the world economy/corporate greed and abuse need to get worse before the "left will rise"? You can apply this globally or just in your country.

I'm actually not sure if the left will ever "rise again". Not in our generation, at least.

Aren't the second and last options redundant?
Anyways, no, imo, revolution happens when enough people are revolutionaries, and people become revolutionaries for a varity of reasons.

It is my belief that socialism would be progress for humanity and that if we progress further, it will be to socialism. Capitalism itself is it's greatest enemy, and it's fall is inevitable. That said, I'm conflicted as to whether we will ever reach real socialism. It's not as if we really deserve it anyway, as a species.

Humanity is much more inclined to continue to face hardship after hardship, and accept that as part of life, than to actually get up and make an effort to change anything for the better. People are fickle, people are scared, and it takes a lot to drive people to go against the system they've known their entire lives.

We will sit back and watch everyone around us succumb to misfortune, poverty, disease and death, without lifting a finger to help ourselves out of fear that we'll be in the same position. We have no problem standing idle and even participating in exploitation and genocide if it means that we won't have to grow emotionally, as people, and risk our livelihood. We're so scared of losing our lives and our ego that we'll live our entire lives in despair if it means we don't have to risk them for ourselves or for anybody else.

Humanity is only sporadically rational, despite what we like to tell ourselves, and we're our own worst enemies. While capitalism works to dismantle itself, we work even harder trying to hold everything together at the seams because we're afraid of change and of something new. Not only that, not only will we slow our own progress down, but we pollute the earth and the environment. We rape and pillage the resources of planet earth with no regard for our own futures, much less those of other creatures.

We managed to evolve more intelligence a little bit sooner, and we're determined to screw up the entire planet brimming with millions of other animals because we can. We are a virus on this planet, because we have no understanding of the consequences of our actions. Sure, socialism is the inevitable next step from capitalism, but that doesn't really matter if we kill ourselves and everything else before we can make the transition.

Hereno's so wise :D

I reckon it could happen over here, but only after people realise how much all three parties are fucking people around.
