Just think of where we'd be if we put even 1% of our resources into space travel.

To say this is ignorant and narrow-minded. This is like saying everyone was an optimist back then and now everyone is a pessimist. Billions of people on Earth, I'm pretty sure there wasn't a general consensus with the current events going on at that time and this. People would of thought of both futures, Fallout-esque and sci-fi future at both times. For ***** sake, the goddamn Cold War was raging during the 50s, the world being on the brink of nuclear war. No doubt a LOT of people thought that the future would be bleak. And now, not all people are thinking the future is dead. Cures for HIV, AIDS, and cancer are getting ever so closer. Civilians are going to space. We have jet packs, for crying out loud! Those certainly point to a good future similar to one imagined by the 50s guys. There will always be different view on everything, basically, and to say this is the consensus of the world is very, very stupid.
FJers viewing this content sympathize with it because minds and opinions are so easy to sway when they don't care/are actively thinking. Putting one second of thought into this will make people remember all the good things in life, like the quadruple amputee vet who got $250,000 raised for him to build his dream house, Egyptian Muslims protecting Egyptian Christians during worship, or (mostly) all charities, just to name a few uplifting things. They all point to a good future.
So, think a bit when you see stuff like this. Because it is stupid.

On a happier note: They were by far mistaken in 1950, who's to say we are not mistaken now too?

Well seeing as this is our views on the future, I doubt we're going to have a lot of pictures of it.

We could've very well been in the stage of civilization first shown in this content hadn't it been for capitalism and commercialization.
