i can think of some.

The population reaching 10 billion in 2050. I would be 60 and more miserable with the excess in population.

The inevitable water wars due to lack of fresh water.

Increase in global temperatures. This summer is already Hell

The future is a very dark place, one would rather have been born in the mediaeval era.

I do not want to be around to witness the horrors of tomorrow. For the sake of human dignity, the sun cannot die soon enough.

Some smaller things I'm afraid of..

Deaths of people we like and who don't want to die, who will die through accidents and illnesses or time. for those who don't desire death, i really really.. have a terrible acceptance of it, i can't handle, my coping skills are so low. they will still die but at least i won't have to bear it, i'm sorry..

With progress, issues that are of upmost importance today, mainstream issues and niche issues, will fade in importance even though they will not yet have all been won. We, who grew fighting for them, will still be desperate that they triumph, but the newer generations will have their own issues, and we won't even understand well and will cause pain though we don't mean to. All of this.. I don't have the energy for. Life too tiring, you can relate

Shitty remakes

New scores of tragedies in the news and just the regular daily bullshit that is this hell.

Say goodbye to Social Security benefits and say hello to "work until you die."

Overpopulation allows corporations to pay low wages due to high supply of workers and scarcity of jobs. Author of "Rich Dad Poor Dad" explains how saving money is a loser's game. The inflation rate is growing while wages are stagnant. The interest rates you earn from banks are a joke.

The U.S. is $21 Trillion dollars in debt and continuously growing. The economy will inevitably collapse in the near future according to economy experts. Don't live in the U.S.? It will still devastate the global economy.

The medieval era was a very dark place.

That is a difficult question because no one can predict the future. Though, some like to believe that history repeats itself, so by looking at the past, one could expect a lot of bad things to happen in the future, too. On a more specific note, considering how overpopulated the world is and how the government of pretty much most countries don't seem to have any interest in establishing population control methods, I can't see this world getting any better soon. There is just too many people.

Collapse like in 2008 or worse? If worse, when do you suppose it’ll happen? Escaping the shitshow is good incentive.

If I could remember to foresee in my mind the global devastation I’m escaping, then I think that would give me the courage to ctb.

I've read that the 2008 banking collapse pales in comparison to what will happen.

Holy shit there are a lot of things to avoid. For starters, the constantly degrading economy, which I’m sure will eventually crash, are accelerating murder of the environment, which will make lots of places uninhabitable in the next 50 years, the constantly worsening poverty in third world countries, fascism on the rise again

I think that in the next decades we'll witness the rise of ignorance due to nonexistent restrictive policies about the propagation of full-blown BS, because people unfortunately don't want to know; they just want to believe in what they want (usually by suggestion or wishful thinking)

Climate chaos, ocean acidification, continued exponential growth of consumption & population, loss of global dimming, clathrate gun explosion, meandering jet-stream causing frequent super storms on the same level as hurricane Katrina, catastrophic sea level rise, extreme food & water shortages, many sections of the Earth becoming uninhabitable either because of rising seas or increased temps causing hundreds of millions of people across the globe (especially along the equator in places like North Africa & Bangladesh) to be displaced and become refugees/homeless pariahs as a result, this in turn (along with the ever worsening excesses of Capitalism) will feed the rising tide of fascism we currently see today potentially causing another Nazi-like authoritarian regime to take power, more ostracization of the mentally ill & austerity on social services, more overall misery & depression in society, more conflicts over dwindling resources, ever higher risks of a nuclear exchange, the eventual collapse of modern civilization and most likely the death of all complex life on the planet as temps rise to something resembling the P-Tr extinction event (or "The Great Dying", as it is known). My bets are that the only lifeforms that'll still be kicking by the end of this century are cockroaches, bacteria/microbes, and tubeworms that exist around deep sea hydro-thermal vents.

I've posted about this sort of thing before in more detail here (https://sanctioned-suicide.org/threads/is-intelligence-a-curse.1315/#post-15850), just in case anyone's curious for more info. The video below also covers a lot of good ground on what we can expect to see happen as time marches on into the grim future that's ahead of us.

Spot on. It's impossible to indicate the exact date & time of when it's exactly going to happen, but, as you said yourself, the fact that it's going to occur at some point soon is an absolute guarantee. The financial speculation on Wall St. is just as high, if not higher, than it was back in 2008. The same factors that were in play back then (what with bad loans being made & how that intertwined with the insanity of the derivatives market) are in full force today. What's more, not a single banker or Wall St. slimeball ever went to jail over 2008 (unless you're in Iceland) and all the costs & consequences from their disgusting, heartless greed that ruined the lives of millions were, instead, shifted on to the backs of the public & the working poor. So of course those same scumfucks are back at the trough like the soulless swine they are, trying to gorge themselves as much as they possibly can before the whole thing falls apart again. This time however, the knock on effects both socially & environmentally will be quite severe. Quantitative easing (the US government printing money at the Federal Reserve to bail out the banks at virtually 0% interest) won't work this time due to running the risk of hyper-inflation (at least that's my guess, anyway). We'll probably see a "bail-in", actually (the banks seizing the deposited funds of everyone who currently has money there, in order to keep themselves afloat). In the midst of such a reckoning, along with the incalculable anger & rage that will well up from the betrayed & forgotten of society (the 90% basically), I can't help, but imagine that some very scary motherfuckers (the kind that would make the "dreaded" Trump seem like a lame puppy by comparison) will be doing their absolute damnedest to seize power where ever it is that they can. Just as Hitler himself seized power during the instability of the Weimar Republic (Germany post WWI, capitalist turf war that it was), due to the rage the people felt, rightfully so, at an inept government that couldn't meet their most basic needs, mostly because of the insane debts that were put on Germany after the conflict which allowed capitalists to hollow out the country to their heart's content at the cost of basic public welfare. The people cried out for a stongman to set things right and to return them to some mythical "golden age" and so along came Hitler with his modified freikorps (which would later become the SS) and the people, desperate & broken as they were, hailed him as their champion. He also had the full support of the business class both domestically & abroad (especially in the US, coincidentally enough), since, naturally, police state authoritarianism could never hurt their profits, whereas socialism & worker ownership most assuredly would. Capitalism has, and will always, turn to fascism in moments of extreme crisis, so as to both secure the wealth of the privileged and keep the filthy, unwashed rabble in line with whatever force necessary. Personally speaking, being a suicidally depressed hikikomori in such a world completely dependent on both his parents & the state through medical disability payments, certainly wouldn't bode well. Thankfully though, I don't live in the US. Otherwise, I'd be pretty damned worried, to be honest. I agree with you however that the US economy imploding in on itself will cause disastrous effects pretty much everywhere, given how the rotten tentacles of finance are wormed together in a giant rotting mound of "too big to fail" putridness. Thanks to all the neoliberal policies that have come to pass in the last few decades from the likes of Bill Clinton in the form of NAFTA, the US economy essentially IS the global economy and will take, or at least try to take, everything down with it as it falls into history's compost bin. Highly recommend the video below for a complete breakdown on the subject.

The longer you go on the more pain, suffering, sorrow, and misery you will experience, There is no hope in the future it sucks worse!

I was first really suicidal in 2010 but I wanted to give myself time for things to improve. There were some upward slopes but 8 yrs later my health is worse, etc.

I've made some mistakes, I've had a lot of failures, disappointments, set backs, and have missed out on everything people call life. But I can honestly say I had absolutely no suicidal thoughts or urges whatsoever (like not even 1) till sometime after I turned 35!

The past is shit no matter what anyone say, countless cruel problems including atrocities and humans being monsters. At least these days we have technology to have information and knowledge instead of being ignorant and abused for a lifetime and despite our hatred, there is truly some advancement to the quality of life.
I know the present is shitty and the future will be shitty also regardless of being worse or better. At the end, life wholly sucks

I'd tend to agree. Modern life sucks, but it's a helluva better than going back to some sort of agrarian style communal living. Eco villages? Fuck that. My life as a hikikomori furnished with technology while being supported by the state is just fine, thank you. The only reason I can exist as comfortably & isolated as I can right now is directly because of modern life, so I can't hold it that much animosity. Is it an omnicidal death machine? Yes. Do I care? Not really. Life on its own isn't much better, frankly. This world is an atrocity factory no matter which way you configure it, so might as well be as comfortable as possible in a life you were never even asked to be given in the first place.

My sentiments exactly. I can't stand those people who blabber about "going back to the woods" like it's some kind of global panacea for all ills. The vast majority of us would get bored as hell having nothing to do throughout the years than playing with sticks and stones, not to mention that we'd exposed back again to all the perils of "mother" nature.

How about going back to early civilizations like Greece or Egypt? Wouldn’t that be better?

If we could hybridize some of the main aspects of ancient Greek culture with modern scientific advancements, we could claim, as a species, to be a little bit better than what expected, yes.
