I think longevity research is a complete waste of time for humanity in 2024. We know what could help humans live longer already: end wars and imperialism, end poverty and hunger and get everyone clean drinking water and good sanitation systems. Do lots of open source medicines instead of allowing capitalism in healthcare. It's not complicated 🤷‍♂️ we can do a lot of amazing longevity research once we get that stuff done.

I have sympathy for your position but looking literally at your statement "longevity research is a complete waste of time for humanity in 2024." I can't help but point out that this kind of thinking would stop most basic science researchers around the world. I can only imagine what you would say about all the other areas of basic research that do not directly relate to your stated humanitarian goals.

Of course but we all know the current research isn’t intended for the benefit of humankind

I totally agree. I also think the debate about AI threatening jobs is addressing the wrong premise. We have much bigger systemic fish to fry.

The thing is that research is almost entirely focused on extending life for billionaires who plan to live in tropical island private kingdom superbunkers and vacation on the moons of Jupiter. That’s why they don’t heed your advice. They’re team “fuck everybody else, Ima live forever”

Unfortunately, the biggest money is made in wars. Poverty and hunger - mean cheap labor. This is a great cast with a great decision, but none of the powers that be will give up money, it gives them power. And power is an intoxicating drug, we can see this in history and in many situations that are happening in the world now.
