It's hard not to look back on history and be disgusted by a number of things which were at one point deemed acceptable, even not so long ago in the grand scheme of things.

The endless list includes segregation and women not having the right to vote.

We'd certainly like to think that we've come a long way.

But when we look back on how much we, as a culture, have evolved for the better, it also makes us stop and wonder what current customs or practices accepted in society today people twenty years from now will look back on in disgust.


This piqued the curiosity of RedditorSalt-Campaign6402,leading them to take to Reddit to ask:

"What modern day practice/ belief is most likely to be considered barbaric and outdated in the future?"


A revaluation of medical practices

"The way that f*cking speculum is shaped."- PopK0rnAndMMs

"Gynaecology procedures being done with out sedation or some type of proper numbing agent."- baconbutt96

"Chemotherapy."- sphygmomanometito

The end of stigma

"The entire system surrounding mental health."- crapgarbage

More respect for the environment

"Deforestation hopefully."- CrumbledTheCookies

More sustainable materials

"Single use plastics."- Lemilli000000n

Improvements in wages and working hours

"Working long hours to the point of sleep deprivation and exhaustion."

"Right now people brag about it."- HonestlyPizza

"Hustle culture."

"It's a scam made up by the rich to make the poor feel good about being exploited."- whythatusername

More humane treatment of animals

"Breeding dogs that can’t breathe."- username-alrdy-takn

Possible life saving advancements in science?

"I feel like organ transplants from strangers will seem bizarre in the future."

"I imagine we will be able to grow genetically-identical organs and use those instead."- thunderbiird1

Twenty years from now, we'll likely find ourselves relieved that some things have finally changed.

Then too, we might look back in horror at many things we wouldn't even take a second thought about at the time.

Some things are deceptively simple.

Oh, skydiving? That's easy.

Love yourself? Simple.

Who can't open a can of pickles?

ME! ME! That's who. I can't do any of the above simply.

It's all hard. And you know it too.

It's just designed to" look" easy only to bamboozle us.

Approach everything as a burden and live by a motto...

Art is subjective.

As much as movies are universally loved, there are some that leave a big question mark.

Sometimes films, plots, and characters make no sense. AT ALL.

And that is uncomfortable for the ego.

Example...

Howard's End.

Is it art?

Am I just dumb?

Why do I care?

They say it's hard for workers to get fired from their jobs. That is unless, of course, the employee is self-sabotaging and has nothing at stake.

While there are many unemployed people desperately looking for work, there are apparently just as many of those who want nothing more than to leave a situation that makes them miserable, despite having a steady paycheck.

A trial can hinge on one simple piece of information.

All it could take for a suspect to walk free or go to jail for the rest of their lives is one single fact.

With this in mind, some lawyers will do their best to make sure that this information is buried, legally and ethically one hopes, and will never be brought up in trial.

However, for this to happen, Lawyers will still need to know this piece of information from their clients, as it otherwise could be brought up by the prosecution, effectively ending the case.
