What will our grand children love/hate about our generation (in your opinion)?

Also, what lessons do you think will be learned from our current economic/political/environmental/social problems that will be considered common sense for that generation?

They'll probably wonder why it took us so long to give LGBT people equal rights under the law.

Thumbs up, Your Star.
I say they'll probably criticize us for screwing up the environment.

They'll hate if we let socialism/communism win.
They'll love it if we stop it.

The way we're going honey. They'll hate us for very very different things.

You actually think the trivial bull**** concerns of today, of Obama being a Communist is a problem for the future? It ain't... Really poor scare tactics btw.

More pressing things like... Water Shortages... food shortages... power shortages...

Grandchildren: Why didn't these people before realise we were running out of these things? Why didn't they do anything?

Grandfather: They were too busy trying to paint the other half of their country as Communists, then actually getting **** done.

Our grandchildren will love that they can see so many amateur porn pics and videos of their friends' grandmothers on the internet.

Our grandchildren will hate that they can see so many amateur porn pics and videos of their own grandmothers on the internet.

Economic - global trade deficits are bad

Political - fact checking is good

Environmental - who goes outside anymore?

Social Problems - everybody will get by with the help of their friends, a list of which can be conveniently kept on their social network profiles

Actually, because of the number of online communities where people work together, I wouldn't be surprised if our grandchildren start to become advocates of anarcho-collectivism. The internet and social networks has caused our the newest generations to be "hooked in" with each other from a very young age. I wouldn't be surprised if they started to use that to create a political philosophy.

Wait, you guys actually think we'll be around long enough to have grandchildren? (<- 30 yr old without kids yet)

They will ask us, "Why didn't you guys do anything to prevent the robot apocalypse?". And we won't have a good answer.

Then you just fist pump them right in the head and knock them out. Teaches them a lesson not to question the stupidity of MTV.

They'll love us for Classic Rock & Roll.

They'll hate us for ruining the environment and for saddling them with debt.

I do know that Al Gore's grandkids will thank and love him for the Internet. Then they will hate him for his movie which now always gets thrown into a debate about the environment for some reason.

They'll hate us for letting so many tasty species go extinct. **** squid AGAIN? That's like the 50th time in a row.
They'll hate us producing superbugs that infect hospitals to the farm.
They'll hate us for essentially being really bad stewards of the planet.
That $50 trillion in unfunded liabilities? Cursing our names. Every second.

They'll love us for the seemingly infinite supply of porn.
They'll love us for 5GB/s network lines per home.
