We shame the Romans for their corruption, early 20th Century Germany for apathy, 19th Century America for “Divine Providence.” Every family also has some shaming in their past; an uncle who did this, or an relative who didn’t do that. In time, as cultures advance and honestly take up the reality of previous sins and miscalculations, great shame is associated. The atomic bomb, draft dodgers, spies of the American Revolution. Our time is no different. In fact, I hate being so pessimistic, but we might be worse. Here’s a list of things history will shame us for if we don’t act soon. In no particular order…

Abortion

Without a doubt, the most heinous act of our time is the legalization and relaxation of abortion. Studies estimate that an entire generation of Americans alone have been killed. Among these might have been great scientists, explorers, mothers, fathers, teachers, and leaders. The pro-life movement is making great gains, and the pro-choice movement is unsustainable. Cultures who value family prosper because they actually repopulate the earth.

North Korea

North Korea is easily the most ignored problem of our time. An entire country has become one large concentration camp. The families and citizens within its borders have fallen victim to an army of lies and persuasions that baffle, confuse, and anger. The problems is, nobody is too angry about it. Though in the meantime, the populous of North Korea is forced into vein labor, murdered, and given no freedom for religion, philosophical appetite, or liberty. One day, these problems will surmount to one of the truly saddest and desperate struggles ever recorded.

The Ending of How I Met Your Mother

Seriously. What the heck were they thinking? For seasons they showed us just how incompatible two people were, and had us waiting to meet one person that got only 15 minutes in the spotlight. Then in 1 hour, destroyed everything they built up. Textbooks will remember this as the quintessential way NOT to tick off an entire generation of viewers.

Chemicals/Poisoning

This is one of the lesser known threats to our time. Our sewers, lakes, and rivers run with the chemicals of discharges contraceptives, plastic toxins, and destructive hormones. Some of these chemicals are injected right into our food.

Infrastructure

Who’s idea was this? ^^^ Give that person a cookie But seriously, the earthquakes, floods, fires and storms wouldn’t carry their death tolls if things were build better.

Illiteracy

When poor children can’t read, they can’t change the future. When you educate, you empower. It’s a benefit to all people when even the least is educated.

The Kardashians

Seriously. What the heck. We give these women more attention than the others on this list combined. It’s not just them. It’s the cultural meme of our time to envy the rich and beautiful, as if they are our super heroes. Turns out, they don’t contribute a lick of richness or beauty to our culture. They’re like the cheap paint that wears off, only to be covered again by another coat.

Genocide: Rwanda, Darfur, Sri Lanka, The Congo, Syria, too many to name

So sad. It’s not just something that happened in in 1915 Armenia, or 1940s Europe. It’s ongoing around the globe today.

Palm Oil

Don’t know what I’m talking about? That’s a problem. Read this. 

Journalistic Integrity

People don’t even realize that the news is not news, and some humorous movies about the news are more truthful than the news they’re making fun of.

Interstellar

This movie sucked more than it’s own black hole. The ending was more like Honey I Shrunk the Kids than anything else.

Human Trafficking

Sad. When I Googled “Human” the engine suggested “Centipede” before “trafficking”. I suppose human trafficking is not a problem of the 21st century. It’s really a historical problem. Still, it’s one of the most alarming concerns of our time.
