“Many of our grandparents were racist, and some of our parents are homophobes. Which of our own closely held beliefs will our own children and grandchildren be appalled by?” That’s a question being posed on Reddit and the majority of responses are thought provoking and intriguing.

Phil Dingra selects a few of his favourite replies, a few of which relate to:

  • Privacy
  • Religious overtolerance
  • Nationalism
  • Nudity and pornography taboos
  • Our aversion to eugenics or designer babies

Two more I would add to this list:

  • Our aversion to euthanasia (or even to debate it seriously)
  • Our current behaviour toward the environment
