As for the idea of exposing them to tech, fuck no. I'd keep my kids off the internet, I don't need retarded content frying their brains, and pedophiles trying to groom them. Especially with how normalized pornography is.

So you'd rather your kids be technologically illiterate as the world leaves them behind?

 I'd teach them how computers work, no access to internet. Not until their of an age that can reason, and even then I'd supervise their use. Something I wish was done for me growing up.

This is like those who decide to homeschool their kids, they always come out naive and unable to relate to their peers. 

It comes with unintended pitfalls when it comes to socializing.

Do you actually care what will happen after your life time and the life time of your children?

If so, why? It doesn't affect you

Yes...much of what makes our life comfortable is derived from people devoting their energies, and sometimes their lives, toward the betterment of humanity. The lack of appreciation for gifts we have received has partially led to this decayed, egocentric position that increasingly permeates our world, leaves litter on the streets, pushes drugs that kill and ruin lives for profit, leaves our society atomized and increasingly mentally ill, propels us toward a technological dystopia instead of a utopia. Not caring about the world beyond you is like being a spoiled, selfish child.

Well you never know, you could be reborn again into the future that you don't care about. That possibility shouldn't be ignored now should it. And besides, the course of action that one might take in the interest of benefitting humanity's future would probably also result in an improvement in your life on a smaller scale if done right. 

The issue I often see, is that while many people are amazing at following some lofty ideology to the exact word that is supposedly supposed to benefit humanity, those same people are often still markedly unpleasant on a personal level, letting their ego and desires make them mistreat other people in their immediate vicinity. A lot of the time they'll even use their lofty ideology as an excuse to severely mistreat and dehumanize people that don't fit in with it even.

So I think ultimately helping humanity long term is all about how you are on an individual, personal basis, to the people immediately surrounding you. All of the hate we see in the world is from a web of ego, trauma and delusions. And unfortunately, a lot of these extreme hateful viewpoints in people came out of incidents of direct mistreatment by people in their immediate personal life. So, just try not to be that person that sends somebody into an egotistical spiral of defensive self destruction. 

Trying to benefit the world without first trying to benefit the people immediately surrounding you by being pleasant is sort of like trying to build a house with bricks that are of very low quality. It's bound to crumble because you didn't care about the little things. So to hell with lofty ideology, just treat individuals with some decency and be pleasant company.

My grandiose delusions are better than yours.

Do you actually care what will happen after your life time

no. im a nihilist: everything will die, nothing matters. no future.

short-term future and mid-term future are a mystery.
long-term future, we already know: 

No Future

We all will die anyway, that is the hard truth. My conclusion from this: So I have all the freedom to do right and to do wrong, and there is no "God" that I have to please.

Anyone who seriously believes that he must "save the planet" is just a complete idiot, who is used by the elite as a foot soldier for the revolution from above.

Or anyone who works for "Extinction Rebellion" as a "rebel" against the extinction of the human species, must also be an idiot who does not understand, that sooner or later the human species will 100% die out.

Nihilism is the only truth: everything will die. I, you, we, all humans, all animals, all plants, our entire planet, our entire solar system, our entire galaxy ... everything will die at some point.

When will all people die? There are approximate forecasts for this, for example in the Wikipedia article "Timeline of the far future":

In 100 million years, an asteroid may hit the earth, that is the same size as the asteroid 66 million years ago, that killed all the dinosaurs. Movie: Dont Look Up (2021).

In 250 million years, all continents will grow together to form a super-continent, there will be more volcanic eruptions and earthquakes, solar radiation will become stronger, and temperatures will rise. These conditions will make life increasingly difficult for animals and plants, and may trigger mass extinctions.

In 500 million years, perhaps a gamma ray or supernova will hit Earth and trigger a mass extinction.

In 600 million years, solar radiation will become increasingly stronger, so that more and more CO2 will be stored in stones. There will be less and less CO2 in the air so C3-photosynthesis will no longer work, so 99% of today's plants will die.

In 1000 million years only single-celled organisms will live on earth, in mountain lakes or in caves. So by then everyone will be dead.

So we are somewhere in the middle of the life cycle of the human species, and now the only question that remains is: How do we want to die? Personally, I don't give a damn because it makes no difference at all, whether everyone dies today from atomic bombs, or only in 1000 million years from natural processes.

But obviously there are always enough idiots who are unsophisticated enough, to work for a "one percent less shit" policy, even if the long-term result is exactly the same as, doing nothing. But the main thing is "well-intended"...
