The Dangers of Presentism — A response to Tobias Stone

Jamie, I admit that the article presents a dark scenario, but I am not sure how “interconnectedness” would save us from destroying each other ? On a human level, even though we know a much more about the world than before, people just do not care… An average European will mourn a terror victims in Paris or Brussels, but do not even clic on the headlines when hundreds die in other parts of the world. We know full well what happens in H&M factories in Bangladesh, we know what happens to small kids who work as slaves on cacao bean plantation, immigrant children drowning etc. All of these are not directly our fault obviously, (though some are…) But we do not care the least as long as they do not see them. Or you think the economical links would be enough to make governments more cautious ?
