At its height, the Roman Empire was home to about 30 % of the world’s population, and in many ways the pinnacle of human advancement. Rome became the first city in history to reach one million inhabitants and was a center of technological, legal, and economic progress. An empire impossible to topple, stable and rich and powerful.
Until it wasn’t anymore. First slowly then suddenly, the most powerful civilization on earth collapsed. If this is how it has been over the ages, what about us today? Will we lose our industrial technology, and with that our greatest achievements, from one dollar pizza to smartphones or laser eye surgery? Will all this go away too?

  1. Okay, humanity will be fine. Cool, that was never in question, humanity is pretty resilient as a species.
    I’m more concerned about the fact my country, in my lifetime, might not have enough water to function. Telling me that in centuries down the line people will be bouncing back isn’t exactly the most reassuring thing since it’s tacitly admitting that we’re absolutely boned but that our great-great-great-grandkids might have a chance.

  2. 😥Another exemple of American silly sophism, just take in consideration all the threats you tell us about, add them and stop counterbalancing with historic events that are no longer pertinent, and you’ll come to the same conclusion as I : We’re f….d ! 😞

  3. saying that is possible to recover is so misleading that it borders on the criminal. We don’t need to recover if we change now.

  4. As long as trees exist we have plenty of fuel to advance to a technological civilization, dont forget that solar panels were invented in the mid 1800’s when wood was still the primary fuel source.

  5. As we say in schools in Germany: “Thema verfehlt – 5”

    This video mainly talks about whether humanity could bounce back. But that wasn’t the question asked in the title.

    The question is: Are we about to go to hell in a handbasket?

    Is the threat of nuclear holocaust – that seems more likely right now than at any point since the end of the cold war – coming true?

    Will the labs that created covid create a new virus with even higher contagion and a very high mortality rate – if they haven’t already – and will that doomsday virus be released?

    Will the attacks on science by identity politics and related totalitarian dogmata keep increasing, while the demoralization of the West continues, and will it be followed up by invasion, like the communist playbook suggests?

    Will the power grids crumble under the added strain from pushes for more EVs?

    Will EVs get pushed on everyone, only to lead to a complete crisis when the world’s accessible stores of lithium and other metals collapse in mere decades?

    Will current government overreach continue and result in one or more nations abandoning all pretenses of democracy and becoming dictatorships?

    “Mankind might bounce back” is not much of a comfort when you see all your loved ones perish….

  6. If such massive extinction of civilisation is going to happen again I hope it will happen according to 21st century ethical standards, where there will be minimum to no pain and ofcourse some amount of consent of the victims. Even destruction should meet the codes of ethics unlike in the past where it ended up with sorrow and pain. There’s no point of creating or building if we compromise on the values we have earned which should be preserved untarnished into eternity. Should happen on the grounds that its the first and last with the supervision of superior panel of experts who deserves the highest position of the social hierarchy in terms of both intellectual and moral suitability. But that is a more of a fictional situation which would very unlikely happen, but if it does I hope it will happen that way speaking from the perspective of humanity as a species on the big picture.

  7. this video actually taught me about the worlds condition and future possibilities much more than my school has ever taught me.
    huge appreciation to the effort they gave for this video.
    love from India.

  8. Modern medicine is not giving us the longest lifespan we’ve ever had. That is a lie. People used to live well over 100 years.

  9. “How likely is all of this?”

    It’s a certainty. Becoming a multi-planetary species is pure delusion mixed in with wishful thinking. The closest solar system is 4 light years away and the planets aren’t even habitable.

    Earth is it. Human extinction will come long before the Earth itself dies. Given anthropogenic climate change, scarcity of non renewable materials needed for things like computer parts, I’d say we have until 2200 as an advanced species, and a few thousand years more after we return to monke.

    After that? Extinction. I’m rooting for the dolphins as the runner up civilization.
